Do you set healthy boundaries?
Boundaries is a fascinating subject. One, because there are so many different areas of our lives plus many of us have different boundaries for different people and situations.
I definitely did not have healthy boundaries when I was younger. Low self-esteem had me willing to take the scraps of other peoples time and attention. Wow, that sounds really sad! But, it is the truth. It wasn’t until I started to work on my self-worth that I was able to start setting boundaries, and at first I didn’t handle it in a healthy way. Usually it was done with resentment, pissed off that I had to set it and people didn’t just ‘know’. This is really confrontation as opposed to setting boundaries, let alone healthy ones.
To be able to set a healthy boundary we must first journey inward. By making this move we can get a clear sense of ourselves and where our boundaries are to create and maintain healthy relationships in every area of our lives. Having boundaries allows you to make yourself a priority.
We set our worth, no one else. One of the first steps is through healthy boundaries. This allows us to respond rather than react when dealing with others.
Often our boundaries are subconsciously set by our childhoods or unhealthy relationships. These imbalances can be released and healed. Healed people heal people, which means that as we set boundaries in healthy ways, we unconsciously teach others to do the same.

Personal boundaries are guidelines, rules or limits that a person creates to identify reasonable, safe and permissible ways for other people to behave towards them and how they will respond when someone passes those limits.
