We all know the feeling of not getting enough ME time.
Maybe you find yourself sneaking off to the bathroom just to clear your head or staying up way too late just to catch a breath.
It’s probably a sign you could use a few healthy boundaries. But most often you don’t set them because you feel guilty or selfish.
I’m here to tell you that setting healthy boundaries is self-care, not selfish.
You know that old saying, you can’t pour from an empty cup?
Basically, it means getting time for yourself. It helps you to give the world the best of you instead of what’s left of you.
When you set boundaries, you might feel like you’re neglecting your relationships, your work, or your friendships.
Enter negative self-talk. That inner mean girl talk is the very reason you need boundaries.
Boundaries give you space to rest and recharge. To be the best person you can be.
When you give & give, your energy is depleted & you get burnt out.
Boundaries are so important to self-care.
Find the right balance & you’re golden.
When you set rigid boundaries, you basically close up shop. You don’t give much to others and you don’t take much either.
With porous boundaries, you give until you have nothing left. Basically, it’s no boundaries.
Now, the VIP of boundaries are the flexible ones. You can give when you can but you’re not afraid to get rigid too.
When you give yourself permission to have flexible boundaries, you give yourself permission to be yourself.
To recharge when you need it and give to others when you can.
You probably expect others to take breaks when they need it.
It’s time to have that same expectation for yourself.
