Resentment Grows Where a Boundary Needs to be Planted

Jul 15, 2020

We’ve all been in the situation where someone, a boss, a co-worker, a partner, a friend, oversteps a boundary, we get frustrated, and we feel resentment toward that person begin to grow. 

The fact is, the way we interact in these interpersonal situations has incredible implications for so many aspects of our lives. It impacts the health of those relationships, it impacts our own sanity and wellbeing, and it impacts the way we show up for other people. 

Boundaries are important...but they’re not always easy to set. 

It’s this reason why we’re tackling this topic in today’s episode, and it’s this reason why we’ve included a bonus module in our new, flagship psych strength building program, Ascend, all about setting boundaries. 

Boundaries are one of the scaffolding elements that helps support you and the life you want to live.  

In this episode, we cover: 

  • What boundaries are (Ashley’s definition is spot-on!) 
  • The obvious and surprising reasons why they’re critical to set 
  • Why they’re so difficult for us to set 
  • And most importantly, how to use evidence-based psychological methods to help yourself move forward to set boundaries, even if you’re uncomfortable 

If you’re someone who is stretched thin and relied upon by other people, this is the episode for you! 


During this episode, we announced the beta release of our signature psych strength building program, Ascend. We couldn’t be more excited to send this baby out into the world!
