Are you a woman who constantly puts herself last and goes out of the way to please others and yet you judge yourself harshly for not being good enough. Do you have difficulty saying no and setting boundaries due to fear of disappointing people? It's common for many women to get trapped in a people pleasing cycle but change is possible. What would it be like if you didn't have to worry about what others think of you? What if you could feel empowered to do what feels right in your gut and break free of limiting self-beliefs? Imagine what it would be like to define your boundaries and feel confident about them and own them guilt free.
