We have talked about internal boundaries and why grounding is important. When you are grounded, you become more aware of your surroundings and how you treat yourself internally. 

So, do you know if you have weak boundaries? 

Here are some signs of weak boundaries: 

  • Saying Yes, when you want to say No 
  • Feeling selfish for taking ‘me time’ 
  • Not speaking up when you are treated unfairly 
  • Pleasing others at your own expense 
  • Someone crossing physical boundaries without your consent 
  • Feeling burned out 
  • Body is exhausted 
  • Annoyed by the littlest thing

Why is having boundaries important? 

 

Good question! When you have unsteady boundaries, you may tend to lose yourself in the process. You begin to live for other people’s expectations of you and not YOU living the life you want for yourself. Being talked down, touching you without your permission, and pleasing others is not a satisfying life honestly. 

When you begin to re-evaluate your relationship with people, people can sense a shift. They may try to bring you back into their own way of control just to satisfy them and this is NOT normal. Common as heck, but not normal and healthy for you. The person could be a bit of an energy vampire (which I will talk about in more details in the next blog) The lowdown of an energy vampire is to take energy away from you. So they can take away how you feel, take away how you should respond to a situation, only want to talk about themselves and not be there for you when you need their help. Sucky person overall. 

It is important to connect with yourself because when you begin to understand the inner you (your soul self) , you begin to live the life you want. Things that may have bothered you before, may not bother you as much. If you have a physical sensation which has been irritating  you for a long time and you begin to focus on yourself, the physical sensation that has been a pain in the butt may get less or go away. 

So, look at your relationships with your friends, family, children, pets, spouse, even co-workers and ask yourself, “Am I speaking up for myself? Is this what I really want? Do I feel respected by this person?” If the answer is no, maybe it is time to re-evaluate your boundaries in your life. 

Having boundaries does not mean you are being difficult. It means you are done taking crap from other people and want to be respected. Nothing wrong with that right? 

Let me know on Instagram how you are going to create boundaries in your life. Sharing is awesome when people can relate to one another.
