If you’re having trouble with creating boundaries, ask for support from friends, family, or a professional counselor. With friends or family, be open about wanting to set limits and open the channels of communication. If things don’t change, consider reaching out to a counselor or another outside resource.
Another important piece of support is that which you give yourself – self-care! While setting boundaries in the first place is its own form of self-care, it’s also important to provide yourself extra support in other ways. Once you get into the habit of things like feeding yourself healthy foods, allowing yourself adequate rest, and doing things that make you feel happy and fulfilled, you’re automatically in a better state physically and mentally.
