In order to live your best life you must start setting healthy personal boundaries. It is through boundaries that we communicate to others our self-worth. Personal boundaries are the mental and emotional limits we establish to protect ourselves from being violated by others which allow us to separate who we are from the feeling and expectations of others.
Understand you have a right to personal boundaries.
Our reality easily shows what we are tolerating in our lives. You have to take responsibility for how you allow others to treat you. At work this might mean saying ‘no’ to taking on someone else’s workload. In your personal life it might mean cutting ties with a toxic partner or establishing boundaries with your best friend.
Define a set of values.
Create a set of values that you will live by, values you want to have in yourself but in friends and family members too. If you want to establish a bountiful and beautiful relationship with yourself and those around you, do not be afraid to tell others when you need emotional and physical space. Don’t ever break a promise to yourself.
Trust and believe in yourself.
Deep down you understand what you need and value. Don’t live according to someone else’s rulebook. Setting healthy boundaries will enable you to be more aligned with your goals and vision you have for your life. Don’t let anyone get in the way of that.
