EP89: I Suck at Setting Boundaries!

A client reached out to me, saying, “I suck at setting boundaries! Allowing others to burst through our boundaries is the same as giving away our authentic nature and our own autonomy to live and breathe in the world.

What is the key to setting strong parameters for ourselves?

Take some time to discern your values and be aligned with what you truly want. Present yourself the way you want the world to respond to you.

As I was working with my client through this process, I asked them:

“What decisions are you making based on your vision of what you want to create in the world?”

Possessing this deeper intuition will help you draw those boundaries and bring you closer to your life fulfillment.

WATCH: I Suck at Setting Boundaries!

Key points covered in this episode: 

✔️ Ask yourself the tough questions. If you have internally decided that other people’s intentions and needs are more important than yours, you’re blocking yourself from moving forward. Be honest with yourself so you can finally stand firm with your higher purpose.

✔️  Recognizing the destructive pattern of pleasing others is the first step to breaking it and knowing what you want. We may not notice it. But throughout our lives, we’ve been hardwired to let people push into our space because of our innate human desire for validation and conformity. But this knee-jerk reaction is making us unhappy. 

✔️ We tend to make decisions that are outside of what we truly want. This leaves us disconnected from our present experience. Creating boundaries equates to being in your aligned self. Strongly stick to your authentic desires and inclinations, and you’ll be able to naturally set those parameters.

✔️  If you feel that you are taken for granted and undervalued, create from inside yourself that person that deserves respect and love. No one receives you in any other way than how you show up in the world. 


✔️ Pay attention to what feels real and true to you. The road to learning how to set boundaries is rocky. But once you start being present at the moment, it becomes more natural. When you begin to make authentic decisions, people around you would respond accordingly.

✔️ Be aware of your thoughts when people cross your boundaries. Recall what happens when people step into your sphere. What comes through your mind? How does it make you feel?
