The idea of setting boundaries with a person you love may seem hard, might even feel impossible.
If you would like to set boundaries with someone you love, ask yourself:
What boundaries would I like to set?
What do I think is hard about setting boundaries?
Why does it seem difficult to set boundaries?
Once you define and determine your boundaries, take a moment to accept boundary setting with the mindset shift, cognitive reframing.
Instead of telling yourself, “It’s hard to set boundaries with someone I love.”
Tell yourself, “I am teaching my loved one how to treat me.”
Reframing your thoughts about boundaries can help you have a different perspective about setting boundaries.
Try this mindset shift the next time you need to set a boundary with a loved one.
