Boundary awareness

“What are boundaries?”

Wikipedia defines “Personal boundaries as guidelines, rules or limits that a person creates to identify reasonable, safe and permissible ways for other people to behave towards them and how they will respond when someone passes those limits.” It is our right to have, state and communicate these boundaries with the hope that others respect them. If these individual boundaries can not be abided by then we have a right to separate ourselves from undesirable situations. Be assertive when affirming our needs and wants. It’s ok to reconsider but only if it’s our choice.
