Ep 161: How to Care More What You Think of Yourself Than What Others Do

Caring more about what I think of myself than what others do is by far the biggest thing that has enabled me to go from having no boundaries to having really healthy boundaries. Keep in mind, this doesn’t mean I don’t care at all what others think of me, but it has become lower on my list of priorities. Experimentation is required when developing healthy boundaries, and I want to show you what that looks like. It will help you shore up your integrity. This week’s episode 161 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast is about how to care more about what you think of you than what others think of you!

In this episode of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I’m sharing the importance of standing up for yourself and giving a shit about yourself and actionable steps you can take right now to care more about what you think of you. I was willing to throw my integrity out the window for the chance that people would like me. I would lie to get others’ approval, which ended up with me not liking myself, or my life. I was trying to live a bunch of other people’s lives instead of my own.

I started to live in alignment with my values and, now, I like me and my life, since I’m no longer lying. Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

What is Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery?

This is the podcast “Fragmented to Whole: Life Lessons from 12 Step Recovery.” It will help people who want to heal to move from fragmented to whole.

Hi, I’m Barb! I share my experience, strength and hope from 12 step recovery in each episode. They’re all 20 minutes or less. Unlike most recovery podcasts where you hear a person’s whole story, in this one each episode is about a specific topic.

There are many life lessons from 12 step recovery that are applicable to those in and outside of recovery. This podcast brings some of those lessons to the airwaves, including such topics as learning acceptance, recognizing and overcoming victim mentality and establishing healthy boundaries.
