Description:

Having connections with people of the opposite gender is both inevitable and normal. That stated, it is good to know how to manage yourself in those relationships so they will not cross the line into an inappropriate bond. In this podcast we will identify ten ways to establish and maintain healthy boundaries so your marriage will be honored even as you interact with people of the opposite sex.

Something to Think about:

 

  • Each person likes to be liked, which also means each person can be vulnerable to opposite sex attractions.
  • When you engage with the opposite gender with deeply personal topics, you are flirting with potential danger.
  • By giving your marriage primacy over all other male/female relationships, you illustrate the presence of trustworthiness.

 

Let’s Talk Question:

What boundaries do you and your spouse have in place that create confidence in maintaining connections with the opposite gender?

Description:

It is quite common for others to presume they can or should define who you are supposed to be and how you ought to feel and prioritize. In those cases, that represents a violation of relationship boundaries. Rather that collapsing in despair or trying to justify your legitimacy, you can choose to hold confidently to your own uniqueness.

Something to Think about:

 

  • It is not the job of others to define who you are supposed to be. That is your job.
  • Being self-preserving is not the same as selfishness.
  • If others respond poorly to your reasonable choices, that is not your problem to solve.

 

Let’s Talk Question:

Give us an example of a time when others have not respected your boundaries. In that situation, how might you respond reasonably, even when it is probable that the other person will not agree?

Description:

In part, healthy relationships are defined by an open spirit. Some, however, struggle to know how revealing they can afford to be, and the result is a closed nature. In this podcast we will identify 8 reasons people can relate with a closed spirit, then we will discuss how to adjust so your communication style will not be hindered by a guarded, calculated nature.

Something to Think about:

 

  • Often a closed nature indicates a history of low trust and high control.
  • Change can happen when you determine that you do not have to live in perpetual reaction against others’ behaviors.
  • Your self-revealing behavior can become a form of affirmation.

 

Let’s Talk Question:

When are you inclined to be non-revealing?  What stress might be driving your behavior in that moment?

Description:

If gratitude is not the most important ingredient for a successful manner of life it is one of the most important. When you naturally see and act upon goodness, your influence increases. Your emotions become more steady. You find contentment more readily. In this podcast you will be challenged to examine your levels of gratitude.

Something to Think about:

 

  • Gratitude is not a behavior to try; rather it is a deeply rooted attitude.
  • When you experience gratitude, a multitude of good things follows.
  • Gratitude allows you to keep envy and tension minimal.

 

Let’s Talk Question:

What are the top 4 or 5 aspects of life you are most grateful for?
