“To find yourself, think for yourself.” – Socrates

It’s here! The final step in building soulful boundaries.

This step focuses on learning how to say Yes authentically and No when you mean it. Sure, it sounds simple in theory, but I’m pretty sure I wouldn’t have an entire method dedicated to setting boundaries if we could all easily say No.

Why is learning how to say Yes in an authentic – aka genuine – way important? When we are always agreeing to new commitments or taking on too many tasks, we end up feeling overwhelmed, resentful, and utterly exhausted. This episode will guide you through why we feel the need always to say Yes and help you discover that there is another way to live.

Hint: it starts with a not-so-little two-letter word.
