The Women's Well

By Lisa M. Miller

Welcome to the Women's Well, a place to nourish your health and spirit. Well guests are ordinary extraordinary women with a story, and in the telling, they shine inspiration for us all.

Here at The Well, we’re about the hard earned wisdom that comes from the deep work of healing -- We’re about making meaning from hardship. And humor, of course, which is often right there, next to the rough spots.

Is there an ugly sweater in that gift bag? You’d better appreciate the Granny who knitted it for you!

In our final episode at The Well this spring: Dr. Janelle McNeal, Alyssa Erickson, and, Ruth Nelson:

Women from 19 through 53 talk about emotional boundaries: What they are, why they’re vital (and sometimes not), and how they’re so much about taking up enough space in our own lives.  And others.

”Even if I am not someone who imagines myself having fences up, I need to be very comfortable with the fact that other people really, really need and like to have fences.” ~Ruth

”I’m one who always wants to say yes...I have to tell myself at the end of the day, for my own personal energy threshold, that I need to be able to say no sometimes.  It’s not something I want to do, it’s something I have to do.” ~Alyssa

“I wholeheartedly believe that I am responsible for my own happiness— yup I’m not counting on anyone else to make me happy, that’s my job....There are times though, when I will do something for someone else that would be to the detriment of my own happiness, because of the level of love, or respect, for that person.” ~Janelle

“I’m really measuring the cost. What is it going to cost me to be a little uncomfortable doing this thing for you that I know you need, and if I can accept the cost of doing this thing, then I give it, no strings attached.” ~Lisa
