“Swoon” Show Notes: Episode #139: Holiday Boundaries

Jeff Guenther, LPC on Nov 14, 2021 in Swoon

This holiday season might be a little different for us after so many folks begin to emerge from the pandemic social distancing practices. But over the last couple years we've all had an opportunity to get clear about our values and priorities. Let Julie and Gina help you make the best of holidays with family.

This episode covers:

  • How can I set boundaries with family successfully?
  • How can I start speaking up for what I want when planning holiday celebrations?
  • I don't want to see my family over the holidays, is that okay?

    Memorable Quotes

    "Just because things have always been done a certain way doesn't mean we can't change it up."

    "Boundaries are a big part of the holidays, but so is asking for what you want."

    "You don't have to spend time with an abuser or people who make you feel shitty or who suck the life out of your celebrations."
