Uphold your boundaries


  1. Define the type of person you want to be.
    Take some time to think about the type of person you want to be, and then start introducing that version of yourself to the world.
  2. Set up boundaries.
    Make a list of boundaries you'd like to have. Then, decide on one actionable step you can take to help you stick to your boundaries.
  3. Start following the boundaries.
    Make sure to stick to them.
  4. Take care of yourself.
    Say no to things that don't contribute to your growth. Spend time around healthy people and reduce interactions with people who drain your energy. Practice positive self-talk and forgive yourself when you make a mistake. Turn off your phone when appropriate and create space for activities that bring you joy.
  5. Review and update your boundaries.
    As humans, we change, and our boundaries change with us. It’s okay if your tolerance for certain things in your relationship changes, and you can always create new expectations. When this happens, you can say, “This is no longer working for me; I would like to [your new expectation].” Over time, people may assume that your boundaries with them have expired. In such cases, remind them (as well as yourself) about your expectations, including why they were set.
