Set Personal Boundaries
What are Boundaries?
Personal boundaries are emotional, physical, and mental limits that each individual must establish based on their own needs and desires to protect him or herself from being used, manipulated or even violated by others. Setting boundaries is a personal responsibility, rooted in self-care and a desire to cultivate wellbeing. The premise is that no one and nothing can hurt you if you don’t allow it.
Boundaries are commonplace in our society, countries have borders, homes have fences, and doors, and offices are either separate rooms or cubicles and these serve to maintain security and a sense of privacy. Personal boundaries can serve us in the same ways.
