Setting and communicating a boundary is a skill inherited often from childhood. Unfortunately, many of the women I work with inside DYW (link) did not acquire this skill. How do you know if you are well practiced in this or not? Take a look at these challenges to find out:
Do you live with:
- A victim mindset?
- Dishonesty in your relationships?
- Do you lack respect for yourself and others?
- Do you have self discipline?
- Do you get distracted or discouraged easily?
- Do you fear conflict?
- Are you easily manipulated?
- Do you tend to try and fix or save others?
- Do you have self control?
The good news is, it doesn’t take much to learn this skill, although it does take time and intention to reinforce it. Once you notice areas that need some boundary work, the benefits that arise will become the driving force behind maintaining this practice for good. And don’t worry, it isn’t too late to begin! I have women from all backgrounds, ages and locations who have decided that this is the year for them, and it can be for you too.
I want to invite you inside DYW— if you haven’t checked it out, take a look now and let me know if you have any questions.
