This week we will examine the basics of boundaries across different areas for you to regain control of your life. We will discuss fundamental strategies involved in building meaningful relationships and setting boundaries by exploring different types of boundaries.
Understanding Interpersonal Needs
Your boundaries are your yes and your no. Learning to set boundaries starts with knowing your needs. This week we will work together to uncover the ways you feel seen, heard, and valued in your relationships. We will discuss types of interpersonal needs, such as affection, inclusion, and control. We will also begin to explore the patterns you have had in previous relationships to uncover ways to help you establish your relational needs and expectations.
Creating Healthy Boundaries
Standing by your boundaries does not make you mean or bitchy.
You get to decide what you can handle at any given moment. This week we will clarify your personal boundaries and check-in with the ways you are currently setting boundaries.
For example-Are you agreeing to plans because you truly want to go or because you are excited that you were asked? If you have clarity on your needs and boundaries you will be more effective at setting limits and protecting your energy. Your emotional limits are not up for negotiation.
Expressing Boundaries To Others
Knowing what you want to say and actually saying it are two different things. We will discuss practical tools and strategies for you to talk to others. We will talk through challenges that have prevent you from keeping boundaries solid and learn ways to clarify our needs and expectations with relational partners.
