1. Boundaries allow us to take care of ourselves
2. Boundaries enable others to take care of themselves
3. Boundaries create the freedom to choose, to give, to receive, to share, and to say no thank you
4. Boundaries keep us safe and healthy
To start setting boundaries for your self and begin your path to healthy living begin by asking yourself; when do I have unclear boundaries, when am I tempted to cross my boundaries, and when do I realize it is necessary to have boundaries in my life.?
If you are finding that you are having trouble setting limits with friend or family it may be helpful to seek out help in learning how to set appropriate boundaries in your relationships.
Happy Boundary Setting! Call me if you would like some support with this.
