Self-Care for Extremely Busy Women

Jul 5, 2022

Suzanne interviews boundary-setting expert Terri Cole, author of Boundary Boss, for a great discussion on boundary-setting, codependency, healthy relationships and more

How often do you think about your breathing? Probably not much, right? Well, our breath is a valuable resource, an underused engine that can really power up our mojo as I share in the opening. I read my blog, The Forgotten Power of Your Breath.

Then I move on to interview Terri Cole, a licensed psychotherapist, fellow podcaster and the author of an awesome book, Boundary Boss. What an empowering conversation we had! Terri really explains just why we lose our boundaries—and how to get them back in a hurry.

Among other things, I learned from her:

  • What boundaries are and why we don’t know what ours are
  • How to spot a boundary violation
  • Why we shouldn’t ‘be nice’ all the time
  • When NOT to set boundaries
  • What ‘boundary destroyers’ are and how to handle them
  • What is a ‘High Functioning Codependent’?
  • How to set internal boundaries

… and a whole lot more.

Much to love and learn in this episode!
