How To Set Personal Boundaries
Personal boundaries protect us from becoming too invested in other people’s lives and from letting others become too invested in ours. They also help us to stay healthy emotionally and mentally.
Know your wants and needs.
You need to be clear with yourself about what you want and need in a given situation.
Communicate your wants and needs clearly to others
If you are feeling uncomfortable, say so directly.
Be willing to compromise
Not every situation will be perfect, but you should always try to find a solution that works well for everyone involved.
Set limits and stick to them.
If someone crosses a boundary that you have set, be firm in enforcing it. It is okay to say “no” or “stop”.
Respect other people’s boundaries as well.
Just as you deserve to have your own personal space and autonomy, so does everyone else around you.
