You may have a problem w/ boundary-setting if you:
Are a big People-Pleaser
You feel an ongoing sense of guilt or fear if other people aren’t happy with you
You feel like you’re always responsible for other peoples happiness
You often don’t feel “good enough” for your work, significant other, family, etc.
Feel free to check out this awesome article I found called 18 Signs You Lack Personal Boundaries. This will help you put your finger on what areas you most want to grow in.
Having boundaries is important because setting said boundaries with ourselves and others leads to feeling more peaceful and free. It raises your level of self-respect, confidence, and allows you to let go of people-pleasing!
In today's podcast, I will give you some ideas of strong and clear boundaries that I encourage you to implement in your life.
The 3 categories covered today include:
Practical ways to set work boundaries
How to speak up for yourself and create relational boundaries
The importance of creating screen boundaries
Check out this article, quoted on today's show, on how working on weekends impacts your well-being.
The 4 Steps to a Clearing Conversation:
1. The lie I created was.... (I'm annoying)
2. Where this lie came from... (i.e. tangible examples of things he or she did)
3. You can support me by... (not calling me XYZ)
4. What you can expect from me is... (AKA how can I show up better for you?)
Like Brene Brown says, "Clear is kind, unclear is unkind."
