It can be physical or mental. Its something indicates a limit.

EXAMPLES OF BOUNDARIES

  • A conversational boundary of not discussing politics, religion or race at work or church

  • A time boundary not allowing any business phone calls after 6pm

  • One of the most difficult , because it involves you having limits with people and having to enforce them. One of the most stressful things can be to tell someone you care about or love the word "NO". Relationship boundaries keep friends, family and coworkers within your limits.

HOW TO SET A BOUNDARY

  1. Start off small.

  2. Be consistent.

You have to be your own advocate and setting boundaries will increase your own self-respect and demand others to respect you as well.
