Boundaries help us define who we are and who we are not. All too often, we learn to act or speak in ways that are designed to make others comfortable or pleased, at the expense of our personal boundaries. Overwhelmed with commitments because you say “yes” to everything someone asks you to do? Find yourself participating in personal or familial obligations that are not serving your well-being? Consistently putting someone else’s priorities ahead of your own in a way that keeps you from moving forward? This is your chance to learn what you will and will not accept, what’s gotten in your way in implementing limits in the past, and how to maintain healthy boundaries for yourself once you know what they are. Melissa Merres is a certified life coach who supports people to build meaningful and satisfying relationships through increased self-awareness, clearer communication, and healthy boundaries.
