I’ve come to realize that I attribute the regular practice of setting strong boundaries to the level of joy, peace, and freedom I feel in my life right now. Setting boundaries in my life have given me a sense of empowerment that I get to lean into on a regular basis.

It’s because of the power setting boundaries has given me that I want to share this topic with you this week. So, in today’s audio workshop I’m talking about the connection between co-dependent relationships and boundaries, how boundaries allow us to receive healthy support, multiple examples of what setting boundaries have done for me, how I love both myself and others by saying no, and more!

What you'll hear in this episode:

  • The connection between setting boundaries and having choices

  • How co-dependent relationships often include a lack of boundaries

  • Why I asked my best friend to set boundaries for her relationship with me

  • How to set or shift boundaries with people around you

  • An example of how boundaries don’t always have to be huge, monumental things

  • Setting boundaries with medical professionals

  • Being okay with others not being okay with your boundaries



  • I set and respect conscious boundaries with love.


  • Think of a time when you listened to your instinct or your gut and gave yourself permission to make the choice that was really in alignment with what you wanted.

    • What was that experience like?

    • How did it feel?

    • What emotions came up for you after?

    • What was the result?


  • Notice times when you feel you don’t have a choice in respect to a request from a friend or family member. Take note, perhaps in a journal, of how you feel in those moments and the circumstances surrounding these moments to see if there is a pattern.

  • After this, if you’re comfortable with starting to say no, I encourage you to do so.
