5 Steps to Calm Any Overwhelming Emotion
- Take charge of your emotions, not the other way around;
- Stop beating yourself up;
- Discover the confidence to lead yourself AND improve your relationships.
Many of us walk around frustrated, lonely, or overwhelmed, and we don't know what to do. On the outside, we try to keep it together. But on the inside, we wonder:
"Will I ever get that relationship right?"
"Will I ever feel at peace with myself?"
We hope to experience kindness, love, and care in our relationships with others, but often what we feel on the inside is misunderstood or left out.
Change starts from the inside out. As you learn to calm your emotions, you'll understand yourself better. You'll experience more peace and compassion toward yourself. As you grow strong on the inside, your relationships will strengthen, too. You'll know what you need and what you want. You'll be able to advocate for yourself.
In this webinar, I'll teach you a 5-step process of calming your emotions so that you can lead them, not the other way around.
How to Set Boundaries with Your Mom
In healthy families, mothers encourage daughters to develop confidence, address challenges, and pursue dreams. The best of moms equip you to build a life that you love based on who God made you to be.But, what if your mother didn’t provide this support? What if you’re at odds with your mother right now?
If you have a challenging relationship with your mom, you may have received damaging messages like these:
- You’ll never be good enough.
- You exist to meet my needs.
- It’s wrong to have your ideas and dreams.
- You're selfish if you pursue what you want.
Setting healthy boundaries with a mother who has hurt you—no matter how unintentionally—is vital. It's important for your well-being, and it's important for hers, too. If setting boundaries with your mom is a challenge, I’d like to share the wisdom I’ve gained with you and respond to your questions.
