It’s Okay to Set Boundaries
We all need boundaries.
We need to know our limits when it comes to our work, time and relationships.
When we don’t set boundaries for ourselves, we tend to become overwhelmed, frustrated and begin to lack the ability to say ‘no.’ We get “lost” in other people and start to put our needs last.
It’s important to understand that it’s okay to make it a habit to set those much-needed boundaries. It’s necessary to recognize what you will and won’t tolerate!
A simple way to explore whether or not you need to set more boundaries is to ask yourself: “does this person/place/event improve my well-being or does it zap my happiness and energy?” As soon as we raise our self-awareness, we know what to work on and we’re able to do something different!
It’s okay to cancel a commitment.
It’s okay to not answer that call.
It’s okay to change your mind.
It’s okay to want to be alone.
It’s okay to take a day off.
It’s okay to do nothing.
It’s okay to speak up.
It’s okay to let go.
Where do you need to set boundaries?
