Friends! I’m so excited! This is the first time I’ve been a guest on someone ELSE’s podcast!
You’ll remember Kelly Covert from when she was MY guest a few weeks back (Overcoming Perfectionism). Well, we loved chatting so much that we had another convo all about boundaries. If you’ve been hanging out with me for a while, you’ll know that boundaries are my jam…so I’m so excited to share this conversation with you.
Here are a few of the things that came up:
“The key to boundaries is being able to distinguish what is our responsibility versus someone else’s responsibility. Not trying to micromanage somebody else’s reaction to our desires for instance.”
“Over the years, there has been a slow awakening about what life can look like when we decide to put ourselves on the priority list, and actually stand in our power.”
“Whether you’re a mother, a partner, or even in the workplace very often there can be some gendered implications for what types of roles women play.”
“I am worthy of shifting a dynamic in my relationship.”
“Tapping into my own desires, insisting on pursuing things that resonated with me, and using my own resources to do it was the thing that made it so that I moved on from my ex.”
“Once you start taking baby steps, then the path will reveal itself. You don’t need to have it all figured out. You don’t need to blow up your life.”
“If your calendar is not your own, if your resources don’t feel like they’re available to you, for things that matter to you, then it’s worth taking a closer look at what areas in your life you might be able to take some baby steps there.”
“If I could trust that everybody was going to support me, and nothing would blow up, what would I really want to do?”
“The more that people do physical activity, the more they just inherently take better care of themselves in other parts of their lives as well.”
“Making mistakes can feel painful, but it’s absolutely essential if we’re going to get to the fulfillment that we so deeply desire in our lives.”
