The hot word ‘boundaries’ is about external boundaries, dealing with people. What is not talked about enough, which it should, is internal boundaries. Internal boundaries are about limits within you. 

What do I mean by limits within you? 

Well, people like to talk about boundaries with people in your life, like your friends, family, kids, pets, strangers. However, we, as individuals, also need limits with ourselves. Our limits could be working from home, social media overload, eating, screen time, whatever limits you have within yourself. 

Sometimes we go a bit overboard and feel tired of ourselves because we pushed our limits. Pushing our limits can shake up our grounding foundation. We can feel exhausted, annoyed as hell, resentful towards ourselves, just a bag of BS that we do not need in our life. 

Internal boundaries are in your control 

You can set your own limit. For instance, when you are going grocery shopping, what is your limit? It could be items you get from your list, how much time you want to spend in the store, limit money, self-check out, or not. Whatever your limit is. Usually, when I go to the grocery store, I look at my shopping list, mentally think where the items are, and go there, get the items, check out and leave. I do not like shopping at all, however, when I do, I come up with a plan. That is my own internal boundaries when it comes to shopping. 

Internal boundaries are also about self-nurturing 

Self-nurturing is a continuous process, so are internal boundaries. As life goes on and evolves, your boundaries may change as well. And you have permission to do so. Give yourself a little bit of credit here! 

Internal boundaries are important for you to protect your peace. To keep yourself in the present moment and to live the life you want. You totally have a choice as to how to respond to people and how to limit yourself with things in your life. 

Internal boundaries are important to protect your mind, body, and soul. 

Let me know on Instagram way(s) you are utilizing your internal boundaries. I would love to hear from you.
