When was the last time you let yourself be bored? When was the last time you let yourself experience boredom?
If you’re anything like me and other humans, you go out of your way to not feel boredom. I would do most anything to avoid feeling the prickly discomfort of boredom. Sometimes that looked like me getting so busy I didn’t have time to be bored. Other times it looked like me over doing some aspect of my life to avoid my life: over watching Netflix, over eating, over exercising, over complaining. You get it…. The things I would do to avoid feeling the feeling of boredom were quite intense.
Listen in to this episode to learn why I’m taking more time to intentionally be bored this summer and why you may want to also.

I have wanted to have this star on the show for years, more than a decade to be honest! She was instrumental in helping me establish boundaries in my relationships, with my biological family and my ex husband.
Because of her work, I feel free and strong in my relationships. She has helped me remove so much drama from my life and I am beyond thrilled to bring her knowledge, message, and expertise to you in this episode. She continues to help me learn more about high functioning codependency so that I can support myself and my clients in midlife and beyond.

Today we have author and small business owner, Christen Bensten on the show.
While many of us have not experienced the level of childhood trauma or debilitating anxiety that Christen has experienced, we all have had childhood experiences that mark us. As a result of this, this interview is one you don’t want to miss.
This past year, Christen published her memoir, Starving.
In it she shares her difficult, yet hopeful story of growing up in a constant state of fear, managing her anxiety and depression on her own, and what it took to find love and healing.
Listen in as we discuss her journey with the intent to bring you hope and model what is possible with resiliency. Thank you Christen for sharing your story.

People pleasing isn’t nice.
It isn’t nice to you and it’s not nice to the other person.
We are lying to ourselves,. saying yes when we mean no and we are setting our relationships up for disconnect and pissiness (is that a word?!)
When I say yes in order to avoid conflict or because I want others to think I’m nice, I’m BSing myself and the other person.
My BS leads to the land of BS (bitter and sour).
I lived many years like this and so have the experience to lead you out of this.
To help you feel better.
About yourself and about your relationships.
Listen in as I give you the actual words to use so you can stop being a people deceiver.

What comes up for you when you hear the word boundary?
For some, it’s a B word….b*tch. You think you are a b*tch if you set a boundary or if you set one you’re being b*tchy.
The reality is quite different. It’s when I don’t set boundaries that I act like a b*tch. When I don’t set boundaries I feel misunderstood, used, resentful, angry….you name it (and it’s not good).
Please listen in and then share this episode. We are not taught this in school and most of our homes were codependent and boundary-less.
Boundaries are now something I use every day in multiple ways.
They are the reason why I feel heard and understood in my relationships.
Furthermore, they are the one thing that, when instituted correctly, bring peace and ease to my clients’ lives.
