Own Your ‘No’
Honour Your Needs By Setting Healthy Boundaries
Learn how to communicate your wants and needs with others
Many of us struggle with setting boundaries and communicating our needs. Often, we fear that saying ‘no’ will lead to conflict, rejection, or abandonment. Women, who are socially cultured to be agreeable and accommodating, especially struggle with saying ‘no.’
However, knowing how to handle uncomfortable situations is essential for emotional maturity. When we can express our needs, even when someone disagrees with us, we become more emotionally mature and form better relationships with others.
We often assume boundaries are something we set against other people. Yet we also need to set boundaries within ourselves — it’s an essential part of regulating our emotions.
In this toolkit, you’ll look at your internal boundaries, how to communicate your wants, and accept other people’s boundaries without feeling rejected.
We share easy-to-use tools to help you understand your struggles with saying ‘no,’ support you in setting healthy boundaries and empower you to uphold the limits you set.
Get Comfortable Saying ‘No’
Saying ‘no’ is one of the most empowering things. When we’re honest with our wants and needs, we can form deeper and more intimate relationships. You are honouring your own needs, but you’re permitting others to show up as their most authentic selves, too.
Study At Your Own Pace, Forever
We designed this course to be completed over a week, but you can take things as fast or as slowly as you like. You’ll also have indefinite access to the course, so you can keep redoing the work, discovering more about yourself each time.
Connect With Yourself
When you set healthy boundaries, you express that you believe your needs deserve to be met. Over time, you’ll continue to develop a deep sense of self-trust, knowing that you’ll be fine no matter the outcome of a situation.
Improve Your Relationships
Being honest and open with how you feel creates an environment for deeper and more enriching relationships. Setting boundaries allows you to better support others in their times of need because you can differentiate between your own feelings and others’.
You’re not alone.
Please remember that many people face these same issues.
There is nothing wrong with you if sometimes you feel carried away by your emotions and out of balance.
