BOUNDARIES WITHOUT BACKLASH PROGRAM
Date and Time:
Most of us are fed up with finding ourselves overcommitted, overworked, and overwhelmed. We know boundaries are important, and we probably even have some ideas of the ones we need to set in our lives. Yet somehow, we don’t.
Why do we struggle to set the boundaries we need?
Saying no can be a delicate, loaded thing. Even the most reasonable, well-intended boundaries can disappoint, confuse, hurt, or rupture trust with people we care about. Our boundaries have impact—and for better or worse, most of us end up swallowing our needs rather than risking the backlash of speaking up.
But this leaves us in between a rock and a hard place. If we express our boundaries we risk harming our connections, but if we don’t, we suffer.
We don’t want to be doormats, but we don’t want to be bulldozers either. Isn’t there a middle way?
Yes, thankfully, there is. And here’s the key:
Having better boundaries is not just about knowing what to say no to, it’s about knowing when and how to say no.
It’s about both acknowledging the boundaries we need AND communicating them in a way that connects. It’s about perceiving our boundaries not as a burden, but as an opportunity. And it’s about crafting conversations that strengthen trust, model self-love, and radiate authenticity.
Boundary-setting is often touted as being essential to self-care and overall happiness, and it certainly can be—but not if we’re burning bridges along the way. Poorly communicated boundaries can destroy relationships, and well-communicated ones can save them!
So where do we begin?
We can’t expect our boundaries to be well-received if we don’t have the proper skillset to communicate them.
None of us are born boundary-setting geniuses, and we weren’t taught this stuff in school. Lucky for us, boundary-setting is a powerful art we can adopt and master whenever we choose to. It just takes the right mindset, tools, and environment to practice.
Join us for a powerful journey to dissolve your boundary-setting fears and gain the skills to start building a life of balance and meaning on your terms.
If you’re ready to stop the cycle of over-extending and learn to set the boundaries you need without hurting the people and commitments that matter to you, then this is the program you’ve been waiting for. I can’t wait to have you along.
