Setting clear personal boundaries is the key to ensuring relationships are mutually respectful, supportive and caring. Boundaries are a measure of self-esteem. They set the limits for acceptable behaviour from those around you, determining whether they feel able to put you down, make fun, or take advantage of your good nature. If you are often made uncomfortable by others’ treatment of you, it may be time to reset these boundaries to a more secure level.
A person with healthy boundaries can say “yes” or “no” to others when they want to, without fear or guilt or that they will damage/lose the relationship. For some who may have rigid boundaries and always keeps others at a distance (whether emotionally or physically). For others they porous boundaries and tend to get too involved with others.
Your emotional and mental health requires frequent assessment of people close to you to determine who needs stronger boundaries or who needs to be shown the exit sign. Unfortunately no one else can do this task for you, it’s your life to mould and shape in a way that serves you.
The first mistake we make is that we have high expectations of what people must be and offer us. This only sets us up for constant disappointment, even on a daily basis in various ways. You have to become aware of what people are capable of, accept it and place them accordingly in your circle of trust. No explanation needed and no guilting allowed. This is just you holding your boundary firmly in place. The End!
