Let's start from the fact that boundaries are not a negative word, on the contrary our boundaries ensure a plethora of positive needs I would say. Boundaries do not mean that we put walls around us, but, that we define our "terms and conditions".
They lay the groundwork for how we want to be treated, but also how we want to treat others.
I have told you many times about self-confidence, and that this is something that is built step by step, so do the boundaries. At the same time, however, it is very important to realize that in order to have self-confidence, there must first be self-esteem and boundaries are part of our self-esteem.
The clearer your boundaries are, the more you value yourself!
By setting boundaries you protect your center!
Healthy boundaries allow you to take responsibility for yourself and your actions, while at the same time helping you to separate the real "responsibilities" and not burden the needs and feelings of others.
When you act without boundaries, you are walking with the burdens of others. What does this mean? That you are burdening the emotional burdens of others and the emotional needs of others. Obviously all these external weights have as their end your emotional fatigue, frustration and removal from your own life.
Live your own life and secure your limits, with kind love and respect for yourself first!
Observe how you feel about the situations and people around you, see what you like, what makes you feel good, what does not and act accordingly.
Say enough is enough, about the behaviors that burden you with discomfort.
Prioritize yourself and your own needs.
Finally, learn to channel your personal energy wisely, maintaining your center!
I am here to support you, design your wins and of course build your boundaries.
