Ep 48: Setting Boundaries

Learn about the importance of boundaries to maintain personal values and self-worth. In this episode, clinical psychologist and author Dr Rebecca Ray shares her wisdom around setting boundaries, communicating boundaries to others and consistently reinforcing them. Learn how doing so can build more trust and respect in relationships, lead to a greater sense of self-worth and reduce frustration and resentment.

So what’s this episode really about

  • Why setting and maintaining boundaries is so important.
  • The unexpected gifts of articulating our needs.
  • Practical ways to establish healthy boundaries
  • And so much more.

You can quote us on that…

“Boundaries are actually the language of self-worth.”

Dr Rebecca Ray

“Physically and emotionally, we just can’t keep being everything to everyone.”

Meg Durham

“A boundary error is when someone didn’t know the boundary was there, crossed it, got made aware of it and then usually goes on to respect it…a boundary violation is where someone was very aware that there’s a boundary there but chooses to cross it anyway.”
