10 Steps on How To Set Boundaries Without Offending People

Are you struggling with setting your boundaries? Do you want to know how to respectfully tell others about your boundaries? Today, Jay questions the traditional notion that a "good person" is one who never says no. This outdated definition leads to a lack of boundaries, which ultimately harms personal well-being. By redefining what it means to be a good person, one can recognize the importance of investing in themselves and navigating difficult conversations. What does setting boundaries truly mean? They are defined not by what we want from others, but by what we need for ourselves. Jay explains that boundaries should not aim to control others but should protect the individual from their own triggers and provides practical advice on how to communicate boundaries effectively, suggesting the use of simple, clear statements without over-explanation. In this episode, you'll learn: How to set boundaries without feeling guilty How to NO effectively How to communicate boundaries clearly How to handle other people's reactions How to build confidence in setting boundaries Don't wait to reclaim your time, energy, and peace of mind—take control and become the assertive, self-respecting individual you deserve to be.
