Healthy boundaries in life protect us & keep us safe. They define who we are in relation to others. They allow us to connect with ourselves & be in control. Setting boundaries is about giving yourself support and empowerment. We all have limits, & boundaries communicate this. The question is do we know what are our boundaries? Many people don’t. The first step is to know who you are & what matters to you. Make the boundaries about you & how beneficial they will be to your well-being. Communicate them clearly as people will test them. Let your behaviour be your voice. It can be difficult to confront people & speak up for yourself. We are too often afraid of others reactions. Setting boundaries improves our self-esteem, our independence & helps us grow.
It is not your responsibility to fix others.

You have a right to your own feelings Your happiness depends only on yourself
It is OK to put yourself first
You are entitled to exit any situation you are not comfortable with
