Most of the time, people are not trying to violate your limits — they just aren’t aware of what they are. Sometimes, this is because we are not clear with ourselves or other people about what we want or need.

I totally agree with her, so lets talk about it. There are three different perspectives of boundaries. Boundaries set to respect yourself, boundaries you set to help others respect you, and other’s boundaries set to help you respect them. Here are some examples of boundaries that can be set from different perspectives.

Boundaries set to respect yourself

I will not eat sugar after 9pm

Boundaries set for others’ to respect you

When we go out tonight, I can’t drink anything with sugar.

Boundaries other’s set to help you respect them

When we go out, I have to leave by 11 pm because I have work in the morning
