So many times, I hear:
Why does this keep happening to me?
Why do I have so bad luck in relationships?
Why is it so hard to find someone to love and for them to love me?
If you have repeated this in your life (over and over again), then you need to take a look at your boundaries within your relationship.
Boundaries are simply the border or the lines that separate you from another person that you are in a relationship with.
Boundaries communicate to other people about what you like, what you don’t like, what you tolerate, and what you absolutely will not take.
Simply, boundaries let other people know how to treat you.
Do you know how you like to be treated?
Boundaries do not mean that you are being mean or trying to control another person. You are simply letting people know how you operate and what kind of person is worthy of being in your life.
Yes! You are worth it!
You have the right and get to decide who is good enough to be in your life.
You are the best person to take care of you. And at the end of the day, you are the only one responsible for your well-being.
Still not convinced?
Here are some signs that you may need (better) boundaries:
You have the constant need to fix something or someone
You stay in relationships or situations that you are not happy or unsatisfied with
You are constantly worried about the future
You feel obligated to help other people out
You are indecisive about relationships
You apologize constantly if you are unable to do something for another person
You feel jealous if your friends or partners have outside relationships
You always need to be around another person
Are any of these signs showing up in your life? Let me know in the comments!
