When was the last time you set (and enforced) a clear boundary?
A boundary is a line you draw in the sand, a way to let others know how YOU will respond if they choose to behave or not behave in a certain way. 👍
Boundaries help us to communicate our standards for how we conduct ourselves to maintain our own self-respect.
How to set a boundary:
✔️ Make it clear. Vague boundaries don’t help anyone. Use clear, concise language to directly communicate what you will do if they do or don’t do something.
✔️ Make it enforceable. It automatically is enforceable as long as YOU honor your commitment and follow through with how you said you would respond if they crossed a line. Retain your power!
✔️ Do it from a place of love. Boundaries are not about punishing others. They are about loving ourselves and others enough to say this is my boundary for me and I love you.
✔️ Do it for yourself. Boundaries are not about controlling others. The only behavior you can control is your own. Setting boundaries isn’t about telling other people how to behave, it’s about letting others know what YOU will do if their behavior violates your boundaries.
When you set boundaries, you are doing the other person a favor by clarifying what your needs are so that they don’t have to guess. 💯
Think about the people in your life–what kind of boundaries can you set to create healthier relationships?
