Introduction

What Are Boundaries?

Personal boundaries are emotional, physical, and mental limits that each individual must establish based on their own needs and desires to protect him or herself from being used, manipulated or even violated by others. Setting boundaries is a personal responsibility, rooted in self-care and a desire to cultivate well being. The premise is that no one and nothing can hurt you if you don’t allow it.

Boundaries are commonplace in our society, countries have borders, homes have fences, and doors, and offices are either separate rooms or cubicles and these serve to maintain security and a sense of privacy. Personal boundaries can serve us in the same ways.

Boundaries are crucial to healthy relationships, a healthy self, and a healthy life. Sustaining and setting boundaries is a skill that many people have not learned or mastered, but is essential for general well being. Boundaries encompass all areas of self and life, including emotional, mental,

spiritual, and in our relationships with others.

For many, setting boundaries is a new and challenging concept that centers on understanding, knowing and appreciating your personal restrictions.
