Resetting Boundaries

Resetting your boundaries for how you want to be treated by people in your circle can be difficult, but it can be done. It's going to take difficult or uncomfortable conversations, firm tones, and emotional intelligence. It may even take a little soul-searching, praying, and journaling to find ways to re-teach people how to treat you and some practice so that you set the tone for future relationships. As I get older, the more I understand the importance of effectively communicating my needs and expectations in order to protect my peace. Some of the things I accepted in the past, I can no longer accept. The way I've been spoken to in the past by certain individuals, I can no longer tolerate. And, I absolutely do not wish to partake in drama-filled conversations. In life, we grow. This means growing up and beyond things and people that no longer provide value to our lives. And, this means resetting boundaries for those we want in our lives. Below are ten ways to do this:

  1. Set aside time to reflect on what you want and need in relationships.

  2. Clearly communicate your expectations and boundaries to those around you.

  3. Make sure you are clear and consistent with your expectations.

  4. Respect others' boundaries and opinions.

  5. Don't be afraid to say no if something doesn't feel right.

  6. Speak up when someone crosses your boundaries or makes you feel uncomfortable.

  7. Take time to think before responding to requests or demands.

  8. Be flexible and open to new ideas and ways of doing things.

  9. Don't be afraid to take a break from a situation or person if needed.

  10. Remember that you have the right to establish and maintain your own boundaries.

Remember, we are all worthy of the same respect we give others. This is grown woman stuff! Please leave a comment and provide ways you set boundaries in your relationships.
