As promised here's part 2 of my interview with PsychCentral about people pleasing and boundaries.
7 Pointers for Setting Boundaries When You're a True Blue People Pleaser
If you missed part 1, it was about why boundaries are so difficult for people who have a people pleasing habit.
Feel free to share any comments or questions below!
Sometimes life can cause us to feel tangled up inside.
When we've got a difficult decision to make; when we're in a challenging situation that we can't figure our way out of; when we're overwhelmed with life; when we're in a conflict with someone we love.
This tangle can be uncomfortable at best, painful at worst.
In these situations, our instinct may be to try to work really hard trying to untangle the knot.
Recently I was interviewed for an article on Psych Central about why boundary setting is so hard for people pleasers, and why it's so important to learn how to set them.
This is one of my favorite topics so I was excited to have the opportunity to share my thoughts!
I'd love to hear what you think.
Stay tuned for part 2 next month where I talk about how to get started with boundary setting when it's new and scary.
