Healthy Boundaries

Healthy Boundaries = Stating what you need and expect today (this might be different than a month or 5 years ago).


Asking for what you need

An ability to share your thoughts, feelings, beliefs, and opinions (even when someone else disagrees or is critical or judgmental)

Confidently saying NO (and No Thank You) when you really mean NO

No need to apologize for your needs


No need to over-explain your NO or make excuses (“No, thank you. I’m grateful for the invitation, but it doesn’t line up with my priorities right now”)

Not taking other’s NOs personal

Cheers to healthy boundary setting!
