Feeling like you are leaking energy all over the place?
Letting yourself down so that you don’t let others down?
Feeling resentful and on the edge of burnout?
Feeling like you second guess yourself because you default to focusing more on others at the expense of yourself?
What you put up with, you end up with.
That’s why healthy boundaries is such a game-changer.
Without them, there is nothing that separates who you are from who they are.
Pretty soon you can’t decipher your beliefs, your desires, and your feelings from those around you
Your sense of self diminishes and along with it goes your self-confidence, self-esteem, and self-worth.
“Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves, even when we risk disappointing others.”– Brene Brown
Boundaries are everything and if you are looking to have better relationships in your life, start by re-examining your boundaries.
Many of my client’s associate boundaries with disconnecting from others, when really boundaries allow the right people to come even closer in a way that doesn’t override who you are.
Healthy boundaries build a level of mutual respect between you and the people you choose to have in your life.
If you feel resentful, angry, burnt out, or often feel taken for granted by others (or am an expert people-pleaser), you likely need healthier boundaries.
You are leaking your precious energy all over these relationships and both you and the relationship are paying the cost.
Boundaries create meaningful relationships.
What seems like a wall really becomes a door – to what is meant to be in your life.
Here’s where it gets really good though — a life with plenty of healthy boundaries…
- Develops a life of more peace and ease
- Helps you truly know yourself
- Teaches others how to treat you
- Develops your personal communication
- Builds your self esteem and self confidence
Boundaries build better relationships and more importantly, they help you build your self-identity, self-esteem, and self-confidence in advocating for who you are and what you need.
The hardest part of setting a boundary is knowing that you are worth it and getting past the voice that tells you otherwise.
