Healthy boundaries are essential to our well-being. Do you feel like a doormat for people to walk all over you? Or do you feel like a garbage can where all members of your social circle choose to dump their emotional baggage? Do you drop everything to help others all the time? These are signs that you aren’t putting up healthy boundaries, which can be detrimental to your mental health.
Creating healthy boundaries between you and the people you share life with is a critical habit for your mental strength. Boundaries are an essential measure of your self-worth. By creating healthy boundaries, you are letting others know how to treat you while allowing you to be the best version of yourself.
