Guilt-Free Boundaries and How to Have Hard Conversations
That’s what my guests and I are talking about in today’s video. Some of the biggest conflicts in my personal life grew so big simply because I wasn’t good at communicating—my intentions, my concerns, my needs, or maybe the most important part, my boundaries.
So I Got a Little Help from My Friends
I called on my very dear friends, Elizabeth DiAlto, creator of Wild Soul Movement, author of Untame Yourself, and host of the Truth-Telling podcast, and Alexandra Jamieson, co-creator of the Oscar-nominated documentary Super Size Me and best-selling author of Women, Food, and Desire and co-author of Getting to Hell Yes! (my favorite book of the moment) to chat about just that—how to communicate effectively and with KINDNESS for self and others. I’m so excited about sharing this conversation with you.
