On Setting Boundaries
I’ve been thinking lately about boundaries. Specifically, I’ve been thinking about my struggle with recognizing boundaries, and my seemingly complete ineptitude at setting them! I’m taking an e-course by Brené Brown, and this week she asked us to think of a boundary mantra. I’ve decided mine is *Consider Yourself*. I am contemplating adding “first” to that mantra, but it sounds so… selfish. *Consider yourself first* Does that sound selfish, or self-serving? Are those healthy things? I’m really unsure. I am so used to considering others- how they think, feel, and what they might say and do, mainly to me, if I say no.
I obviously have a lot to learn about boundaries, which I’m sure are not all-in or all-out sort of things.
Consider Yourself First? We’ll see.
