S1 Ep 9: Setting Boundaries

with Empathy featuring Katya


For those of us who are empathetic towards others, setting boundaries can be extra challenging. Maybe we notice it when we begin to set a boundary and we realize we're more connected to what the other person is feeling instead of how we are feeling. If you’ve wondered how to stay connected both to your own empathy AND your boundaries, this episode is for you!

🌱 In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why folks with high empathy skills may have a harder time setting boundaries.
  • What’s an empathy button?
  • How to set boundaries in a way that fuels you.
