Let’s be real: many of us struggle with boundaries, and sometimes we aren’t even sure where to draw the line, when a boundary has been crossed, or how to communicate our boundaries to others.
Boundaries are a set of basic rules or guidelines that we set for ourselves to determine the types of behaviour we will tolerate, and those boundaries impact the health of our relationships with others, as well as with ourselves.
We can’t blame others for crossing our boundaries if we don’t make them clear. It’s our responsibility to set the boundaries for ourselves and to protect them, but this can be easier said than done.
After many requests for an episode all about boundaries, today I’m walking you through what boundaries are, the different types of boundaries, why they’re so crucial in relationships, how to enforce them, and figuring out the often uncomfortable conversations that can come with them.
When it comes to setting boundaries, there are some of the areas you want to think about:
“I will no longer let people ________.”
“I deserve _________.”
“I need to _________________ to protect my energy.”
“What am I tolerating from others that is draining?”
