Tune into your feelings

There are two key feelings that are red flags that you are letting go of your boundaries.

  • Discomfort. Ask yourself what is causing the discomfort.
  • Resentment. Resentment usually comes from being taken advantage of or not appreciated.

If you notice yourself slipping and not sustaining your boundaries, ask yourself what's changed. Find out what you do have control over and what you are going to do about it.

With some people, maintaining healthy boundaries doesn’t require a direct and clear-cut dialogue.

If you’re having a hard time with boundaries, seek some support: a support group, church, counseling, coaching or good friends.

You can’t set good boundaries if you’re unsure of where your limits are.

We might fear the other person’s response if we set and enforce our boundaries.

Communicating your boundaries takes practice.

Putting yourself first gives you the energy, peace of mind and positive outlook to be more present with others and be there for them. 

Consider how you were raised along with your role in your family. These can become additional obstacles in setting and preserving boundaries.

It’s important to communicate with the other person when they’ve crossed a boundary.
