The Importance of Boundaries

We all need to protect ourselves from emotional harm. Psychological defenses are created in childhood to serve that purpose unconsciously, but they can also lead us into unhealthy and unproductive behavior. Boundaries, unlike psychological defense mechanisms, are conscious and healthy ways to protect ourselves from emotional and psychological harm.

Why Words Matter

If you communicate clearly and confidently, whether at work or in your personal life, you are much more likely to command the respect of others and build stronger relationships. Words are real. Every word we speak either creates or destroys.
