I was 33, single, and struggling with boundaries. I always picked the wrong guy, and then the relationship would blow up, and I’d be crushed and have a crisis of confidence.
One day I was driving to a work appointment and switched on my radio and discovered Dr. Cloud on my local radio station. He spoke to my brokenness about my relationships. He taught me about boundaries in such a simple way! He stated that boundaries are like the locked door on a house; you unlock the door to let in the right people and keep it shut to keep the wrong people out!
You can imagine what a thrill it was for me to host Dr. Henry Cloud on my podcast! I was geeking out 🙂 He’s been my mentor and life coach for twenty-five years, and I’ve never even talked to him.
My focus of this interview was, can a lack of boundaries or being co-dependent contribute to cancer risk. Of course, I’ve been wondering if I’ve contributed to my cancer through the drama I’ve had in my personal life.
I found his answer surprising, so make sure you listen to part one of my interview with Dr. Cloud.
