The Boundaries.Me Podcast: Jo Saxton - Guarding Yourself From Your FlawsMar 17, 2020
Boundaries can free us to lead our lives by unburdening us from our flaws and past mistakes. It’s like a quarantine. It may seem as though boundaries prevent freedom, but in most cases, it’s the exact opposite.
In this episode of Dr. Henry Cloud’s Boundaries.Me Podcast, Jo Saxton, an author, public speaker, and host of the Lead Stories Podcast, tells us about how setting a boundary around her brokenness was a turning point in her life. Pain will do all kinds of things to the mind, and our first reactions to mental pain when we’re young often exacerbate things. That’s part of Jo’s story. She found solace in denial, and in drinking too much. It happens all the time. Through some good luck and hard work, she found a way to move forward and to forgive her flaws by releasing them to a boundary. She knew there were consequences to going to certain places in her mind, and setting the boundary freed her to start leading her life.
