Understanding & Defining Boundaries

Written by: Pam Hamidi, Self Acceptance Coach

Have you ever found yourself giving yourself rules? For example, "I'm going to work out five days a week, so I don't get fat." Or "I'm never going to drink because I lose control when I do."

Did you know that you are very likely doing it out of a place of fear when you do this? When we make rules for ourselves, we're doing it because we don't trust ourselves to behave otherwise.

Here is where creating healthy boundaries comes in. These are boundaries created from a place of love and the highest, best, and most authentic versions of ourselves in mind. Boundaries move us into what feels best for us, keeping the highest version of ourselves in mind.
