Although growing and pushing yourself to be a better person can be wildly fulfilling, it isn't without an obstacle or twelve. For many people (probably you), they find themselves at odds with a few peeps in their world who simply "don't get" this whole personal development thing. In fact, they may actually really like the old, unhealthy, un-boundaried, people-pleaser version of YOU.

If you're comin' up against this racket, honey, you are certainly not alone. When you start seeing awesome changes in your life, you #natch want to share those insights with the people you're closest to. But, more often than not, you're met with "that's nice for you" or even more common, "what's all this woo-woo, hippie shit you're into lately?"

In this episode, I address six things to keep in mind as you start sharing your new-found enlightenment with your nay-saying friends and fam. You'll learn specific ways to address these peeps, how to tweak your approach to get the response you're looking for, and what to do if you need to lay down some badass boundaries.

This pod explores:

  • How to have compassion for your friends and fam who think you're now a part of some internet cult
  • The #1 thing you MUST watch for when you approach people with tools you KNOW would help them out
  • Why you need to find like-minded people who've drank the same "koolaid" and where to find them
