Where are Your Boundaries At?
Do you feel like sometimes you are constantly living in reaction to everyone. People are constantly “triggering” you by what they do and say. Anger is a sign that you have no boundaries. Well, maybe it’s time to take a look at your Boundaries. As mom’s and women we have a tendency to have less boundaries and sometimes make excuses for men and children as they live their lives and ignore our boundaries. But if you are constantly getting angry it is time to take a look.
Which person are you?
Soft on issues and soft on people – Passive
Hard in issues and soft on people- Assertive
Hard on people and hard on issues- Aggressive
I’m sure you know someone from each of the categories.
Creating boundaries when you did not have any before can be challenging. In the beginning those around you will be testing you. The key is to remain firm. If you really want people to start respecting you than that is how you have to play. Don’t feel bad when someone is uncomfortable with your choices. Feeling uncomfortable is part of the human experience. Remember change comes with time.
