WHAT KIND OF BOUNDARY SETTING DO YOU NEED?
How many times you have said ‘yes’ when you really meant to say ‘no’? Do you let people take advantage of your good manners and helpfulness? Does it seem to you that the world is full of takers instead of givers? You are of course doing the right thing, and still, people taking advantage of you. These people don’t know where to stop, don’t they?
As much as you want to blame this – you might think rightfully- on other people, others taking advantage of you stem from you. Since no one told you how to set healthy boundaries, how would you know how to protect yourself?
IT IS EASY TO SET BOUNDARIES
It is true. It is not difficult to set healthy boundaries. First, you must know that setting boundaries DO NOT equal being assertive and rude. There is a polite, ethical and moral way to set boundaries.
The primary goal of boundaries is to protect your self-worth. When you protect your self-worth, you feel balanced and strong. Self-love comes from balanced and strong behaviors.
