Tim wraps up our discussion on Fence Myths and turns to the subject of constructing fences on ourselves. The most urgent we have for building fences in our lives is in limiting ourselves in order to provide freedom for others.

Wii20100314-Entry068-Invisible fences are for dogs, not people

Trudi discusses the Tenth Law of Fences. We might have established many fences in our life, with our spouse, our children, our co-workers, our friends – but we did not perform a critical step…we did not tell them. Trudi talks about the need to make our fences visible.
