Goal for the Day: Keep Your Boundaries

Do you ever feel as though you’re being pressured into doing something that you don’t want to do? Do you find it difficult to say, “No?” Have you begun to feel that some of the people in your life take advantage of you? If so, it may be time to reevaluate your boundaries.

While pushing people away completely is not in your best interest, it is important to keep healthy boundaries. Remember, you have rights. You have the right to feel, to think, to be independent, to act according to your own plan. You have the right not to feel guilty, you have the right to not be bullied. You have the right to say, “No.” And, most definitely you have the right to privacy.

Today, give yourself a few moments to pause and take stock of what you’re feeling. Are you exercising your rights? If not, you may need to assert some boundaries into your relationships at work, with your friends, or even at home. There’s no need to be confrontational. Simple logic is all that’s needed. That combined with a level head and a sense of calm, will ensure that you’re happily living life on your terms.
