Boundary boss babe, Terri Cole, has the last word when it comes to the power of personal boundaries. As a top psychotherapist, she’s helped thousands of women set and sustain effective boundaries with ease and grace for over two decades.
Her modern diagnosis of codependent behavior is going to hit home for so many of you out there who are seriously slaying it hard in life but become shrinking violets when it comes to articulating your needs with those closest to you — or feel shackled by the need/yearning to people-please, even at the expense of your sanity.
We get it. We relate, and boy, have we been there!
The good news is, there is a way out. Terri has it all mapped out in her boundary blueprint, Boundary Boss, right down to conversation scripts! In this episode, we deep dive into different boundary scenarios and how you can set limits with anyone using her specific set of tools to help you become the boss of you!
Remember, boundaries are not a punishment; instead, they are an opportunity to cultivate healthy relationships and expectations that nourish us rather than deplete our inner resources.
