Nedra Glover Tawwab: Set Boundaries, Find Peace

Over the last few weeks, we’ve focused on the power of letting go! During this series alone, we’ve learned about the magic of surrender, how to let go of guilt, how to gain freedom and to close out our Let It Go Series we are finding peace by setting boundaries.

Letting go can be an active process that often requires some discomfort. It places us in a position to remove relationships that no longer serve us and it forces us to set and enforce boundaries that may change how we communicate with others. Today’s guest lives by the philosophy that a lack of boundaries and assertiveness underlie most relationship issues and she is here to help us set boundaries by letting go of the toxic habits that keep us from finding peace.
