It is essential skill to develop if you want to lead a fulfilling life.
Paulo Coelho says ” when you say ‘yes’ to others, make sure you are not saying ‘Not to yourself.
You feel guilty, selfish , not so good when you acknowledge your needs and desires above the family, friends, neighbors, etc etc or when you refuse someone something because you are really tied up, or when you tell your child to behave respectfully.
Setting boundaries is an art , it is not a discipline.
It is not building a wall, rather gate which some are allowed to walk in always, some need your permission and some can communicate only through intercom 😅. Also which you can shut temporarily to take care of yourself, to nurture yourself, to recharge yourself.
Believe it, boundaries guard your personal happiness and peace of mind too.
