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.
MORE IDEAS ON THIS
It’s important to communicate with the other person when they’ve crossed a boundary.
Let the other person know what in particular is bothersome to you. Do it respectfully and work together to address it.
If you’re having a hard time with boundaries, seek some support: a support group, church, counseling, coaching or good friends.
Communicating your boundaries takes practice.
Start with a small boundary that isn’t threatening to you, and then incrementally increase to more challenging boundaries.
There are two key feelings that are red flags that you are letting go of your boundaries.
Putting yourself first gives you the energy, peace of mind and positive outlook to be more present with others and be there for them.
You can’t set good boundaries if you’re unsure of where your limits are.
Identify what you can permit and accept and what makes you feel uncomfortable or stressed.
Consider how you were raised along with your role in your family. These can become additional obstacles in setting and preserving boundaries.
Is there a healthy give and take with the people you surround yourself with?
With some people, maintaining healthy boundaries doesn’t require a direct and clear-cut dialogue.
There are other times you might need to be frank, such as with those who have a different personality or cultural background.
We might fear the other person’s response if we set and enforce our boundaries.
Boundaries aren’t just a sign of a healthy relationship; they’re a sign of self-respect. Give yourself permission to set boundaries.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
