How is your “no” muscle?
Are you creating personal space for yourself?
Are you creating healthy boundaries?
What are boundaries you ask? Setting boundaries is often thought of as something you set between yourself and another person. Boundaries are not as much for the other person as they are for you.
We need boundaries or else we lose ourselves. It’s as if we meld into the background. Our feelings and emotions are tucked inside or expressed in agitation because we allowed our boundaries to be crossed.
When setting boundaries, be aware of how you set those boundaries. Did you know that poor boundaries are boundaries that can be too weak and there isn’t enough separateness between you and another or your partner?
Boundaries that are too rigid, keep you from being close to another person.
Then there are boundaries that bounce back and forth between close and rigid.
Having clear set solid boundaries outwardly and inwardly shows a level of respect toward ourselves.
Setting boundaries with yourself is important in creating changes. Is your initial reaction to do whatever it is to please another person?
