Accepting Your Own Boundaries
Updated: Aug 20, 2019
Give me a 👋 if you struggle with boundaries.
How do boundaries FEEL to you...
Do they feel mean? Controlling?? Are you worried about other people's reactions? Can you pinpoint where you would have learned these beliefs about holding a boundary? Ever notice when you encounter someone who is really good at holding boundaries they are totally nonchalant about it? Plus they seem super-emotionally healthy and they get along with everyone?
Personally, I LOVE encountering people like that.
What our kids need
Our kids need that kind of example. They need us to model healthy boundaries. Our children will do as we do. And it's crazy how what they need is pretty much always what we need. I don't know about you but my kids make up a huge percentage of my motivation for self-improvement. I want to do it for me, but still struggle with my own self-worth. My kids, however, mean everything in the world to me. They are worth learning new skills for. They are worth increasing my self-respect for. They are worth knowing and holding my boundaries for because - so bad - I want these things for them. The boundaries skills I've learned from LANGUAGE OF LISTENING® are the skills I am most thankful for. After a childhood of having my boundaries trampled, I longed for these skills. Now that I've got them I see how they've led me to healthier parenting, to empowering my kids, and especially back to my true self - someone I thought I might never recover. I see how incredibly valuable healthy and confident boundaries are for good relationships. They are valuable for ALL relationships, most-importantly our relationship with ourselves. That's why the first LANGUAGE OF LISTENING® course I'll be offering will be all about uncovering your boundaries and holding them with ease. The course is slated to be released Fall of 2019. To get notified about course enrollment and even start a boundaries convo with me join my email list. For a limited time I'm giving 1 FREE Coaching email to everyone who signs up for my list.

Let's transform our experience with boundaries from something that's a struggle to something that grows in us an empowering self-respect.
