Bailey is joined by her team member and life balance coach Jennifer Wielage to talk about the importance of taking control of your thoughts and feelings as well as setting boundaries to deepen your connection with others.

They share crucial tips on how to take control of your thoughts, how to deal with the anxiety of what we expect others to be and the discrepancy between what we expected and what we are truly experiencing, how to face the challenge of working with people we feel are sabotaging us and how to handle emotional flooding. 


The deeper your relationships, the more connected you feel. And the more connected you feel, the more meaning you get out of life.

Key Takeaways:

  • A relationship is our thoughts we have about that person. 
  • People are going to be exactly the way they are; you can decide to accept them or not.
  • Controlling your narrative and removing the manual of expectations are the key to having better relationships.
  • We can’t control reality but we can control the way we think about it to get closer to another person.
  • If you are getting so upset about someone, be curious about yourself and understand why you feel the way you do. 
  • If someone invades your physical or emotional space you need to set boundaries.
  • Not knowing other people’s boundaries is an opportunity to connect deeper and have a conversation.
  • “Taking responsibility about how you feel and having boundaries at the same time is the recipe for beautiful relationships”
