Hay House author Nancy Levin joined me on The Best Ever You Show Radio Show to chat about her new book Setting Boundaries Will Set You Free. Levin, who shares she didn't set her real first boundary until she was 45 years old said, "It's not anyone else's job to uphold our own boundaries. It's up to us." Levin read Anatomy of a Boundary from her book, which is at the beginning and is a poem she wrote. (Levin also hold an MFA in Creative Writing and Poetics from Naropa University in Boulder, Colorado.)
About boundaries and their impact on relationships, Levin adds that often we think "There's some version of "if they really knew me... if they saw this... they wouldn't love me. We're also thinking I really want to be loved for the truth of who I really am. I just want to be loved for me. We can't be loved for the truth of who we are, if we aren't revealing who we are. So in order to have true health connected relationships, we want to start learning to reveal to the truth of who we are.
Nancy also joined me on our new "TV" show which airs on YouTube and can be replayed here: https://www.besteveryou.com/tv
Setting Boundaries Will Set You Free is the Ultimate Guide to Telling the Truth, Creating Connection, and Finding Freedom
Do you feel like you're a "pushover"? Do you let other people make all the plans--letting them pick the movie, the restaurant, or the vacation destination? Does self-care feel selfish to you? And do you find yourself feeling resentful toward others because they don't seem to take your needs into consideration?
Can you relate? If the answer is yes, this is the book for you!
In this book, master coach, speaker, and author Nancy Levin will help you establish clear and healthy boundaries. This isn't easy; many of us don't want to "rock the boat." We assume setting boundaries will lead to conflict. And, unfortunately, by avoiding conflict and not setting limits, we tend to choose long-term unhappiness instead of short-term discomfort.
This book includes exercises and practical tools to help even the most conflict-averse, people-pleasing readers learn new habits. You'll learn how to recognize and take inventory of your boundaries, view your boundaries differently by creating a Boundary Pyramid, learn how to say "no" effectively, and set your Bottom-Line Boundary. As your supportive guide, Nancy will show you how to gather the courage to live a life of "boundary badassery."
