Don’t feel like a victim. There’s no need. You can do something about it.
You might have “Boundary-itis!” Dr. Shaler talks about how you can empower yourself by clarifying, expressing, and maintaining your boundaries…and WHY that’s essential to your well-being!
Sure, you know that setting boundaries is a good thing, but this information is SO compelling that you’ll want to listen so you can put it in place right away!
In this empowering episode with Susan, we covered some new areas of keeping yourself safe. I asked Susan why she thinks we need to be empowered. Interesting answer.
