What are boundaries?

Boundaries are the limits and space required for physical, emotional, spiritual and mental well-being. They provide you with a sense of control and security and allow you to establish your unique values and needs. Through self-awareness, self-compassion and self-care, they are a crucial aspect of giving yourself permission to be human. 

In the words of Prentis Hemphill, “Boundaries are the distance at which I can love you and me simultaneously.”

Strong boundaries are essential for your overall health and happiness. It helps you to feel in control of your life, and to avoid feeling overwhelmed or taken advantage of by others. Most importantly, clear and loving boundaries define how we can authentically establish trust and respect with one another. Not forcing or bending someone else to another’s will. 

Unfortunately, most of us were never taught how to set boundaries. And worse yet, told that having boundaries made you selfish or entitled. In particular, women in the US have been domesticated by society to put others' needs ahead of their own to be a “good person.” Thankfully, these outdated ways of thinking are now changing with more and more people yearning for ways to set boundaries on purpose.  

However, setting and maintaining boundaries can be challenging, especially if you’ve never successfully done it before. It may require practicing assertiveness and learning to communicate your needs and wants in a clear and direct manner. It may also involve confronting past experiences that may have taught you to ignore your own boundaries, such as abuse or neglect.

Boundaries are essential. By setting and maintaining clear boundaries, you will feel in control of your life, establish trust and respect in your relationships, and avoid feeling overwhelmed or taken advantage of by others. 

What are Healthy Boundaries?

So here’s the deal. There is such a thing as healthy and unhealthy boundaries. 

Healthy boundaries are intended to create a solution. Unhealthy boundaries are often fear-based trigger responses. Healthy boundaries consciously consider both parties. Unhealthy boundaries unconsciously ignore consideration or either party.  

For instance…

Unhealthy Boundary: Ignoring someone trying to get closure around a triggering experience with you. 

Healthy Boundary: Telling someone you don’t have the capacity to have a deep conversation right now. 

At their best, healthy boundaries create crystal clear clarity around expectations and agreements so no one leaves disappointed. 


Expectations - Agreement = Disappointment

Why are Healthy Boundaries Important?

Healthy boundaries are essential for maintaining a healthy and respectful relationship with yourself and others. They help you to take care of yourself and to avoid being taken advantage of, mistreated, or manipulated. They also help to avoid becoming overly involved in someone else's problems so that you can maintain your independence and avoid co-dependency.

When you set and enforce your boundaries, you show others that you have respect for yourself and that you expect the same in return. This will exponentially improve the quality of your relationships.

How to Set and Maintain Healthy Boundaries

Setting and maintaining healthy boundaries requires self-awareness and assertiveness. Here are some tips to help you set and maintain healthy boundaries:

Identify your boundaries: Start by thinking about what you are comfortable with and what you are not comfortable with in your relationships with yourself and others. Consider your physical, emotional, and mental limits, and list everything draining you because you don’t have a healthy boundary. 

Communicate your boundaries: Once you have identified your drains, determine an appropriate boundary to communicate. Be clear and concise, and avoid using vague or ambiguous language. It's also important to be lovingly assertive and to stick to your boundaries once they have been set.

Enforce your boundaries: Once you have communicated your boundaries, it's important to enforce them. This means protecting yourself and your boundaries, even if it means saying "no" or standing up for yourself. A boundary means nothing if it’s not enforced.

Be flexible: It's important to remember that healthy boundaries are not set in stone and can change over time. Be open to adjusting your boundaries as your needs and priorities change.
