The Purpose of Boundaries: How to Respect You

Boundaries are not the easiest thing to implement in relationships, but they are absolutely necessary.

“Messed up people will try to tell you otherwise, but boundaries have nothing to do with whether you love someone or not. They are not judgments, punishments, or betrayals. They are a purely peaceable thing: the basic principles you identify for yourself that define the behaviors that you will tolerate from others, as well as the responses you will have to those behaviors. Boundaries teach people how to treat you, and they teach you how to respect yourself.”

– Tiny Beautiful Things by Cheryl Strayed

Powerful, right? I knew you’d think so. On this episode of the show I invited Dr. Candace Anthony, a boundaries expert, to teach us how to set and enforce boundaries. She also breaks down why we even need boundaries in the first place.

Dr. Candace Anthony is a clinical therapist and coach with a passion for helping Black women build healthier boundaries and live life as authentically as possible.

Her goal is to encourage women to be the truest form of themselves by helping them identify their Ideal Self and develop the process necessary to help bring this version to fruition. And fellas don’t worry, you can apply the information she shares as well.

She has spent the last 15 years providing clinical therapy to Black women, aiding them in learning healthy, emotional, and social responses to their mental health and wellness.

Now, she uses her professional knowledge and personal experiences to The Boundary Project, delivering the same benefit and impact to more women, including you!
