Radically Loved® with Rosie Acosta

Hello Friends, I’m Rosie Acosta. I am a Meditation Teacher; Speaker and Author of You Are Radically Loved: A healing journey to self-love. I grew up in East Los Angeles during the 92 La Riots and it set me on a troubled path for many years. I didn’t grow up with mentors in my life, so I turned to reading as many books as I possibly could to learn about life’s purpose. In my journey as a First Gen-Mexican American, I found having these conversations gave me insight, support, and inspiration. So, I decided to create a place where I could share these conversations with my community. The Radically Loved Podcast was born! How do we create a radically loved life? Come have a sit with me so we can discover all things mindfulness, spirituality, self-love, and overall healthy living. Please be sure to share the episodes that you love and also leave us a review!

Do you find yourself doing things you hate? How often do you engage with people who drain you, but you still spend time with them anyway? All of us have preferences, but we often don't honor them. Subsequently, we end up burned out and frustrated, leading to resentment. Identifying acts you're pushing yourself to do is the first step to boundary setting.
In this episode, Nedra Glover Tawwab joins us to discuss the importance of asserting and honoring your preferences. We need to be honest with ourselves as we can never please everyone. On the bright side, there will always be the right community where you can thrive. Nedra also shares ways to end toxic relationships and manage "energy vampires."

Episode Highlights
Importance of Boundary Setting
●Nedra’s book compiled a series of her personal life experiences as well as those of her clients on boundary issues.
●We often don’t realize how we have adopted other people’s beliefs. Setting boundaries is a way to reclaim ourselves.
●We all have things we like and don’t like. However, asserting these preferences is usually a challenge.
●As adults, we need to honor other people's boundaries, especially the boundaries of children.
●We ignore our personal discomfort by allowing ourselves to submit to people's beliefs.
How Can We Start with Boundary Setting?
●Honoring your preferences requires identifying how things could either be spirit enhancers or spirit breakers.
●In the podcast, Rosie and Nedra discuss how to overcome Rosie’s aversion to Facebook.
●When you know that specific actions are draining, it helps to find other strategies to achieve the same goal and still retain energy.
●We have our own energetic boundaries that notify us whenever we’re involved in an energetically draining pursuit.
Boundary Setting with Energy Vampires
●When dealing with people who drain your energy, determine how often, for what duration, and what topics you will engage with that person.
●We tend to get used to patterns in relationships. However, if a specific relationship is draining, we need to break the pattern. Do something different.
●Nedra suggests reflecting on how you can contribute your own pain in these relationships.
●If you think you are the energy vampire, ask people you trust for their feedback.
You Can’t Please Everyone
●It’s easy to point out other people’s flaws and harder to look at our own.
●Remember that you cannot please everyone, and that's okay.
●In the era of social media, it's normal to want everyone to like you. People are different, and you won't align with everyone.
●Instead of trying to please everyone, look for your own community that appreciates you.
How to End Toxic Relationships
●We often feel that ending relationships require closure and a declaration of why the other person is terrible.
●However, relationships can end slowly over time.
●Before confronting toxic people, identify your intentions first.
●It's best to opt for a gentle conversation and tell them you need space, which can gradually end the relationship.
How to Encourage Children to Try Things
●Nedra shares that children already have preferences. It may take years for them to be open to new choices.
●Don't force children to try things. Understand that there may be other things that contribute to their preferences.
●Give children the ability to shape their preferences.
●You can introduce them to new things slowly over time.
Why Nedra Feels Radically Loved
●Nedra shares that she feels radically loved when people are authentic in expressing love — such as hugging.

[15:02] “There are things that we like and things that we do not like, and it is okay to honor both.”

[18:35] “If things aren't working, don't keep going with it. Try something even a tad bit different.”
[24:44] "The world is full of human beings [that] are different, and there are some people who will be offended by something [and] there are some people who will get the joke. You have to find your community."
