[DIAL AN EXPERT] Kate Anthony on Establishing Boundaries EP#397

Jun 13, 2021

Have you ever found yourself referring to someone in your life by saying, “They simply don’t have any boundaries!”? Maybe it’s an overbearing boss or a parent who is all up in your business and you find yourself labeling them as the one who has no boundaries. What if it was actually the other way around… what if it was about YOU who hadn’t established any boundaries with them?

When someone in your life is forceful and brazen, it can be so easy to assign blame to them and focus on why they are a complete asshat instead of examining the behavior you may be tolerating. Perhaps it’s about what you haven’t said up until this point… the behavior you continue to allow. And maybe you constantly complain about how frustrating your mom is or how aggravating your co-worker is, yet you complain to the wrong party. To those who may give you sympathy, but who aren’t capable of creating any substantial change.

On the show this week, I dial up Kate Anthony, a dear friend, colleague and a powerhouse in the field of ultimate boundary setting: maneuvering through divorce. In this candid conversation, we discuss the areas where women tend to struggle with boundaries, tactics to start speaking up for yourself, and how to reclaim your power. And, please don’t be fooled… this episode is NOT only about divorce. There is something to be gleaned for any woman struggling to speak up for herself in a powerful way. Get some.

This pod explores:

  • The most common areas where women have difficulty speaking up for their wants, needs, and opinions
  • Where [the hell] to start if you know you need to start establishing boundaries
  • The sexual boundary that many women don’t even realize is available to them
  • How Kate managed to have a stellar divorce even though her marriage was hugely abusive
