How boundaries can help you create the booze-free life you crave

 

Have you said Yes to something, then wished you said No and felt cranky and resentful?

 

Me too.

 

Then I’d be horrified at the anger and resentment I was feeling TOWARDS PEOPLE I LOVE (eek!) and would try to drown the “bad” feelings out with a glass or two or five of dry white.

 

Boundary setting can be scary, I get that.  But with practice it can be done with love & grace for both you and the other person.

 

I think there are two important points here:

  • Society has been telling women FOREVER that we should allow other people’s desires to take over our own, and
  • You are not responsible for how other people feel. I know, liberating, right?

 

I did a Live today about exactly this.  Have a watch (it’s only 6 minutes long).  I’d love to know what you think.

 

PS if you'd like to dig a bit deeper into this, I can highly recommend Set Boundaries, Find Peace: A Guide to Reclaiming Yourself by Nedra Glover Tawwab.
