5 steps to find life purpose
…..and live as your authentic self
How exactly do we become lost or disconnected from ourselves to the point where we feel completely stuck and uninspired in life.
I hear this time and time again especially from women heading into the middle part of life. They just feel like they have no purpose and no joy in their life.
I believe a big part of this is we spend so much time, sometimes years taking care of other people, putting everyone else first at the cost of our happiness and health.
Most of this is expected of us from our family, significant others, and also society in general. Women are expected to be the perfect Mom, wife, friend, employee, and business owner. We are also expected to do this while looking and acting a certain way.
The good news is that we are free to do what we want. We don’t have to do any of these things. It’s a choice we make and it’s all about setting healthy and strong...
Setting boundaries might sound a bit confrontational or limiting. Actually, it’s what I think is one of the most important forms of self-care/self-love and it is not limiting but actually very expansive and can help you live your life more fully being authentically yourself.
What exactly is a boundary? A boundary is a limit we set around what we consider acceptable and unacceptable behavior. What we will do or not do, accept, and tolerate.
A boundary is very personal, it has nothing to do with another person. It is our own setpoint for what is acceptable in our life and it is our responsibility to set and maintain them and no one else's.
If you feel someone has stepped over one of your boundaries it’s because you let it happen.
It is not someone else's job to uphold and respect our boundaries, it’s our job.
If you set a boundary and don’t hold to it then you will send the message that no one else has to respect it either.
We teach people how to treat us.
