When you don’t set healthy boundaries with the people around you, it sends a crystal-clear message… and it’s one you may not be aware of.
There are several types of boundaries you are setting everyday without even realizing it. When you ignore a phone call because you are in the middle of your morning routine and getting kids out the door… that’s a time boundary. You don’t have time in that moment to deal with that call.
When you are standing in line at the store and someone steps too close to you, you move away. That’s a physical boundary and establishing comfortable personal space.
We set time, physical, emotional boundaries, as well as relationship boundaries and others.
Setting healthy personal boundaries is how you communicate to others that you have self-respect, self-worth, and you won’t let people walk all over you.

If any of that list feels familiar, this episode is for you!
And there’s another trap with unhealthy boundaries! You don’t set healthy boundaries, you overextend yourself and that makes you tired and grumpy, other things in your life suffer because you spread yourself too thin, then you want to be mad at the person you didn’t set boundaries with like it’s their fault!
Oh. My. Goodness.
But that’s the cold hard truth, my friends.
We get angry at the person because we didn’t have the courage to step up for ourselves and say “no”. This is how anger and resentment starts to brew… and if you want to live a healthy and happy life, there is no space for anger and resentment.
