Why are boundaries necessary?
- For protection and personal security
- To create order
- To define ourselves clearly
- To gain a clearer sense of ourselves in relation to others
- To empower us to determine how we will be treated by others
Maintaining boundaries allows us to gain trust in ourselves to take care of ourselves. It results in a healthy sense of control and overall well-being. How do you plan on creating boundaries in your life today?
