Create Personal Freedom, Set Boundaries, & Improve Your Relationship

Set boundaries and reclaim your freedom.

When you hear the word “boundaries,” what do you think of?

Do you think of something negative, a protective shell meant to keep others out of your personal space? Do you think of creating distance between yourself and those you’re in relationships with?

“Boundaries” may sound like a scary word with negative connations, but it’s really not! Boundaries not only give you a sense of personal freedom, but they also create healthy, lasting relationships!

For example, think of having boundaries at work. Whether you work a 9-5 job in the office or freelance at home, you’ve probably set time containers for your work, right? You work during a certain period, and then after your work is done, you stop working so that you can recharge and spend time with your family or friends. If you haven’t set boundaries at work, you’ll find yourself either working too little or too much, leading to an unhealthy relationship with your job either way.

We need boundaries in every aspect of our lives — from the work we do to the relationships we have with our loved ones. Boundaries aren’t a bad thing — in fact, when we set boundaries, we become better communicators and curators of our needs and desires.

But how do we set boundaries? How do we have hard conversations with those we love in order to love them and ourselves even better?

Today on The School of Greatness, I have the expert on boundaries to teach us how — please welcome therapist Nedra Tawwab!
