Set boundaries

Become yourself


Is it difficult for you to say “no”, because you don't want to disappoint or hurt other people?

Do you regularly do things that you don't want to do (e.g. staying late at parties even though you're tired) because other people asked you to?

Can you feel other people's needs better than your own?

Setting boundaries is very useful to lead an authentic life. Due to certain biographical experiences, some of us have learned to mistrust our intuition. But: Setting boundaries is something you can learn.

In this group we approach the topic from two sides: In the first part, you will learn ways to connect to yourself and your needs. This helps you realize where your boundaries are. In the second part of the group, you will have the opportunity to develop personal strategies to set boundaries and practice these in a warm and non-judgmental environment. In the group we want to answer the following questions together:

  • How do I realize where my boundaries are?
  • What does it feel like, when I have overstepped my boundaries?
  • Why is it so difficult to distance myself?
  • How do I communicate these boundaries?

Is it worth the effort? Yes! Because setting boundaries opens up time and space to follow your own aims and dreams, helps you to step up for yourself and gives you more energy and joy!

Queer people are very welcome!
