Your Holidays Will Be Good When Your Boundaries Are.
In case you hadn't noticed the towering pumpkin displays in the grocery store, the catalogues and coupons clogging your mailbox, or the tinsel-spangled interiors of every store you dare step foot in... the holidays are upon us.
The holidays can be so amazing: Its the time to expand our souls, embrace generosity and good will, enjoy the warmth of our families and friends, and be grateful for the wonderful relationships in our lives. And... as you well know, holidays can also be fraught with stress, overwhelm, overspending, and tense moments with family members.
In my experience as both a marriage counselor and therapist (as well as personally) the "dark side" of the holiday experience often happens when people struggle to hold healthy boundaries.
The Usual Suspects:
Because these kinds of boundary problems are so common (and so darn avoidable, with advance planning) I thought I'd put together some holiday-specific boundary advice on this edition of the Love, Happiness and Success Podcast.
I'm sharing some tools to help you get your boundaries "just right," and enjoy yourself this year.
I sincerely hope that it helps you avoid the pitfalls and enhance all the wonderful moments that the month ahead has to offer.
From me to you,
Lisa Marie Bobby
