    Set Boundaries, Find Peace: A form of self-respect to reclaim your life


    When someone crosses your boundaries, they're telling you,


    What you want doesn't matter."


    Self-respect is defined as holding yourself in esteem and believing that you are worthy of being treated well. Having self-respect in a relationship means you hold yourself to your standards and are not pushed beyond these boundaries. When you love someone with an addiction or are in a relationship with someone who has an addiction, chances are your limits have been pushed, and your boundaries are blurred.

    SELF-WORTH: Your value doesn't decrease based on someone's inability to see your worth
     
    It's not who you are that holds you back. It's who you think you're not. Self-worth is an internal state of being that comes from self-acceptance and self-love. It's a measure of how you value and regard yourself despite what others may say or do. Loving someone with an addiction can quickly erode self-worth.


     


    You Are Enough: Tap Back into Your Self-Worth: In this podcast, you will learn about what self-worth is and where it comes from, and how to cultivate worthiness by seeing your value!
