I figured out with Leah’s help, what in fact, my boundaries were
I was, over the course of time, able to establish some boundaries for myself, once I figured out with Leah’s help, what in fact my boundaries were. At times, this made for some difficulties in the relationship with which I was dealing, but the alternative–to continue to have overly flexible boundaries wasn’t working, and in the end would have caused, and did cause even more problems.
I would say for someone who might have reservations about trying the “life coach” route, that you should seriously consider it, and in particular the services offered by Leah. She helped me, and, in the end, assuming you are considering some sort of counseling, you don’t have much to lose, except for several hours of your time and some dollars (the same as if you went the therapist route). The access to consultation by email in between coaching sessions is a big plus, and Leah responded to my emails in a timely manner.
I am, by the way, the other side of 50, and while Leah is considerably younger, I had no difficulty speaking with her. I found her friendly and eager to try to help.
