Creating Healthy Boundaries

What needs to be remembered when setting healthy boundaries:β €
β €
1. Be aware of your values. πŸ™
Everyone has different values. Example: if family is most important to you, you may set limits to other spheres. β €
β €
2. Know your limits. πŸš«β €
Be observant of what is acceptable to you and what is not. Be specific. Raise your voice and set a limit. β €
β €
3. Pay attention to your feelings. 🌈
Listen to what your feelings are telling you. Our feelings are a doorway to know what is comfort and what is not. β €
β €
4. Be assertive. πŸ—£οΈ
When you know you have to set a boundary, say “No”. Be clear. β €
β €
5. Have self respect. ❀
Remember you are the most important person for yourself. Open boundaries in order to be liked by others may have an impact on your own self respect. β €
β €
6. Have respect for others. πŸ™Œ
Be sure that your behavior is not self centered, at the expense of others. It is not about winning, but is about being fair to others including yourself and having a goal towards the relationship’s long term health. β €
β €
7. Consider a broader perspective. ✨
Sometimes it may be that you will give more than you receive and sometimes you will receive more than you will give. Be willing to have a broader and an open view, when appropriate. Yet yes if you are always the one taking or giving, there is a concern to be addressed or a boundary to build. β €
β €
Setting boundaries is a process. Don’t be too harsh on yourself. Take time to know you. What you may like, what you may not be comfortable with. Set a boundary when you feel discomfort. Listen to your intuition. It knows the best. β €
β €
Seek support of your close ones or seek Professional Help if there is ambivalence. Stay patient. πŸ’›πŸŒˆβ„
