The coronavirus pandemic has forced all of us to change the way we work, live and socialize. Work-life balance is an issue for most of us, as we run meetings and Zoom emails with almost no time for healthy breaks and meals. Godere della privacy a casa è una sfida poiché tutti i membri della famiglia sono a casa e i bambini stanno imparando a casa. We have all been tested for our ability to set boundaries with the people in our lives: our bosses, colleagues, family and friends. It’s something everyone is experiencing one wayoanher.
What’s more, socializing with friends and family is harder because everyone has different comfort levels, Andexpectations vary when hanging out in a pandemic. If you feel like you’re drowning in work, exhausted at home, oexperiencing more anger and anxiety in your relationships than ever before, you may need to take care of your emotional well-being by practicing boundary setting.
Unfortunately, setting boundaries in relationships may not be that simple as we often associate relationships with an idealistic open space where we can both be open and honest with each other. Agree that being free and open to your spouse, friends, and family is key.
But what happens when the boss repeatedly schedules online meetings during daily lunch breaks? What happens when parents offend their spouse? What do you do when your friend shares a secret you told him in secret?
All your relationships – platonic, romantic or family – need personal boundaries. Bez zdrowych granic twoje relacje często stają się problematyczne, a w wielu przypadkach stajesz się sfrustrowany.
Do you have border problems?
While boundaries often create healthy relationships, it’s essential to know that you need to be emotionally healthy to develop them. How can you know if you have limits in your relationships? Ask yourself the following questions.
- Do you feel like you are spending most of your people saving energy from their personal problems?
- Do you overdo it often and then feel overwhelmed?
- Do you think the people around you are taking advantage of your kindness and openness?
- In your relationships, are you the kind of person who apologizes for a mistake, Andven if your partner makes a mistake?
- Do you have to defend your values all the time?
- Do you often find your friends, family or partner dragging you into pointless discussions?
If you answered yes to the above questions, you have borderline issues. The good news is that you can change your life by setting personal boundaries.
What are the personal limits?
As mentioned above, organizations create a code of conduct or rules governing how they interact to maintain functionality and ethics. Personal boundaries are rules you set for yourself to determine how you and the people around you navigate a relationship. Boundaries are behavioral rules for people in a relationship.
It’s n about betraying the other personon caring enough. Personal limitations recognize that you care enough to know when to be for someone and when to stay away and take care of yourself. Indeed, personal boundaries are a form of love.
Cases where friends and parents try to separate couples for no good reason, or when a person avoids meeting friends to appease a jealous partner are situations where boundaries are unhealthy. Others may include leaving your job to be close to your emotionally needy parents or leaving classes to reassure a friend who refuses to study.
I could give endless examples, but most importantly, the lack of boundaries in relationships often encourages disrespect, abuse, and a lack of progress on both sides. Instead, both sides remain in a sticky pool of negative feelings but don’t want to change because they want to stay in control or are afraid of letting the other side down.
What’s worse is that your boundaries affect your self-esteem and identity. If a person constantly abuses and bullies you, it lowers your self-esteem to stay in control, which makes you think negatively about yourself. The result is often a vicious circle of interdependence in which both the victim and the savior get an emotional high from each other.
Typically, people with weak emotional boundaries in relationships fall into two broad categories:
Salvatori: coloro che si prendono troppe responsabilità perché credono che "sistemare" i loro partner dia loro l’amore e l’affetto che desiderano, And
Victims: Those who want other people to be responsible for their emotions and actions and believe that someone will eventually come to save them.
Note that none of the cycle participants have healthy emotional boundaries, hence the need for change.
How to establish personal boundaries
We’ve established that setting emotional boundaries in relationships fosters healthy interactions, builds your self-esteem, reduces negative emotions, Andgenerally keeps you happy. But how do you establish your personal limits?
Ask yourself what you want
Are you in an unhealthy relationship with a parent, friend, partner, or colleague? Sit down and write literally what your current relationship is and write whatever you want. Be as accurate as possible as it helps you analyze everything over time.
Say it literally
Confidence in saying what you want increases when you start saying what you want. If a colleague calls you at 10 p. m.,decline their call and respond the following morning. If the parent insults his partner, tell him directly that if he insults him again, you will ask him to leave and, again, you will no longer be able to invite him. If a colleague is still scheduling business meetings during their lunch break, tell him that if he schedules it during this time, you will need to cancel the appointment he can reschedule at the appropriate time of day. Likewise, Andxpress your gratitude to someone who does something deliberate for you and ask them for help when you need it, instead of using their kindness.
In most cases, the other party will be ready to explain their behavior and will expect you to “understand”. Put your foot down and shake off the shame and humiliation and see how wonderful it is to be in control. It’s not true? Does it matter if they are family, friends, or partner – remind them that they have crossed a line.
Gradually exchange information
Defining the boundaries of a long-term relationship takes time and effort on both sides. Over time, Andxchange information with the other party to discuss how to manage your relationship in the future. Remember to be kind, honest, and appreciate each other.
Resources that can help you
Learning to draw healthy boundaries is life changing, and the Boundary Guide is the best place to start. It includes more detailed information that will allow you to fully understand the limitations and guided meditation for daily practice. Try it out and see how your relationships begin to develop.
In romantic relationships, we often think that boundaries are bad or just not necessary. Isn’t our partner supposed to anticipate our wants and needs? Isn’t that part of being in love? Aren’t boundaries callous? Don’t they interfere with the romance and spontaneity of a relationship?
Many of Ryan Howes’s clients assume that having boundaries means n having loving feelings toward their partner. But it’s actually the opposite.
All healthy relationships have limits. Dr. Howes, a clinical psychologist from Pasadena, California, defines the line as “the line where I finish and someone else starts.” He compares boundaries in relation to boundaries around states.
"Without lines, the distinction becomes blurred: who owns and maintains this ambiguous space? What are the rules?"
When the boundary is clearly defined and respected, you don’t need wallsoelectric fences, he said. “People can even cross the boundary occasionally when there’s a mutual understanding.” However, when the boundary is violated in order to do harmotake advantage, then you’ll likely need walls, gates and guards, he said.
Nelle relazioni sane, i partner "chiedono il permesso, considerano i loro sentimenti, mostrano gratitudine e rispettano le differenze di opinioni, prospettive e sentimenti".
In less healthy relationships, partners assume their partner feels the same way they do (eg, "I like this, so you must, too"), Howes said. They ignore the effects of violating their partner’s boundary (eg, "They’ll get over it ").
Boundaries in romantic relationships are especially critical because, unlike in other relationships, partners inhabit the most intimate spaces, including physical, Andmotional, and sexual, she said.
This is why clearly communicating your boundaries is crucial. But what is no?– it seems?
Below you can find information about limits that don’t work and tips for setting limits that work.
Limits that don’t work
"Boundaries that often fail are those that include the words’ always, ” never’oany absolute language," said Bridget Levy, LCPC, a therapist who works with couples and directs business development at Urban Balance. Such boundaries are usually unrealistic and don ‘t last, she said. She shared these examples: "You never can" or "You must always".
Other poor boundaries keep you away from your partner, have double standards, or try to manipulate the outcome, she said. He shared these examples: “If you aren’t home by 7 p. m. every night, I will n have sex with you,” “If you don’t do X, I will hurt myself”o”You are n allowed to do X, but I can do it when I please.”
Vague boundaries also don’t work. These include, she said: “Don’t spend a lot of money this month”o”Pick up the kids from school a few times a week.”
Many partners don’t even talk about their boundaries. They expect their partner to simply get to know them. It’s not fair, Howes said. For example, you want your partner to appreciate your results. Instead of expressing this need, you hint at it, play a game of “I’ll lavishly affirm you if you’ll return the favor”omope around when it no? accada, disse.
Not only is this ineffective, it creates confusion and can harm your relationship.
Establish healthy boundaries
According to Dr. Leslie Becker-Phelps, a psychologist, healthy boundaries include everything from talking when you think you disrespect yourself to standing out for having time for your interests.
Be aware. Howes, who writes the “In Therapy” blog, said that the first step in establishing any kind of boundary is self-discovery. “You need to know what you like and dislike, what you’re comfortable with versus what scares you, Andhow you want to be treated in given situations.”
Be clear about your needs. Once you know your needs, tell your partner. Howes found that many of the border breaches were due to misunderstandings. A partner has a problem with certain behaviors but never lets his partner know. Often this is because they worry it’ll trigger an argument, he said.
However,”it’s OK to have preferences, Andit’s OK to let your lover know.” For example, if you want to be treated like an equal in financial matters, tell your partner, she said.
Be specific and direct. According to Levy, the more precise you communicate your limits, the better. He shared these examples:
- "I want to know about your day. I’ll be available to give you my full attention in 10 minutes."
- "Se butti i tuoi vestiti sporchi nella spazzatura sabato mattina alle 10, sarò felice di lavarli per te."
- "Ti amo, ma non voglio farti ammalare quando bevi."
- "Don’t read my diary. I feel violated when my privacy is not respected."
Be clear about your love as you clearly define your boundaries.Let your partner know how much you care, said Becker-Phelps, author of the bookUncertain love: How restless attachment can cause jealousy, need and worry and what you can do about it. If they’ve overstepped a boundary, mention this. “Say you want them to respect the boundary and explain its meaning to you.”
She shared this example: "I want you to know that I love you and that I will solve any problems that arise. But I don’t like that when you get angry, you verbally offend yourself. If you want to talk about how it upset you that I ran into my old girlfriend, we can do that, but only if you don’t attack me. "
Becker-Phelps also suggested staying open to hearing how the boundary affects your partner. Talk about it in a way that both of you feel respected, listened to and loved, he said.
Usa le affermazioni "I". According to Levy, the “I” statements “help you maintain your feelings and allow your partner to feel more comfortable and less defensive.” Instead of saying “You have to” or “You should always” use phrases like “I feel”, “I would be grateful” or “I wish if …”
Try the sandwich approach. It consists of a compliment, a criticism, a compliment. Howes said starting with a compliment prevents your partner from getting defensive. “This prepares them for a little criticism, they feel connected and comfortable enough to accept it, and then ends with a compliment.”
Howes shared this example: "I love having sex with you, it’s an incredible part of our relationship. I find that I’m usually in the mood in the morning before work, Andat night I just want to sleep. always in the morning? "
While there’s no guarantee it will always work, people are more open to criticism the first time they feel heard and understood, he said.
Ultimately, healthy relationships require clearly defined parameters. For example, most couples agree that the betrayal is a border breach, Howes said. Ale co oznacza oszukiwano? Is it physical contact, going to lunch, sharing secrets with a friend, fantasizing about someone, or watching porn?
"Quando le coppie sono chiare sui confini della propria relazione, quali sono le regole, gli obiettivi e le aspettative, la relazione può essere stabile", ha affermato.
Last medical examination 25 February 2015.
You lock the door when you leave your apartment, set a glorious out of office message when you go on vacation, Andalmost always say no to party invitations that start after 10 p. m. (JOMO Is the new FOMO, after all). But when it comes to your relationship, your boundaries are pretty nonexistent because, well, what’s romantic about that?
"Ogni volta che si parla di definizione dei confini, viene interpretato come calcolatore, non completamente" in "- diceSarah NasserzadehPh. D., social psychologist and sex counselor in Newport Beach, California. “This is the root of the problem”.
Indeed, well-defined and respected boundaries can form the basis of a healthy relationship, says Erika Lawrence, clinical psychologist and director of translational sciences at Northwestern University’s The Family Institute. “They’re a way of showing respect for the relationship, which allows the relationship to grow in a healthy way if they’re communicated early on,” she says.
Here’s how to set healthy boundarieswithouthurt your SO’s feelings:
1. Don’t delay.
If you don’t think about what your boundaries are, your partner will wind up defining them for you—likely, by crossing them (again and again). “This is one of the main reasons why people feel offended towards their partner after a while or feel bad about themselves when they see that they weren’t sure enough to set their own limits,” says Nasserzadeh.
2. Consider touch, words, time and distance.
It’s n always easy to know what your boundaries are, especially in a new relationship. Lawrence recommends thinking about your limits in four categories: touch, words, time, and physical and emotional distance.
So maybe you’re only cool with handholding in public (touch),won’t accept name-calling (words),value alone time (time), Andcare about moving slowly, emotionally, in a relationship (distance). Then trust your intuition, says Lawrence. “If you’re n ready to move that boundary, anyone who is worth being with will respect that.”
3. Act your limits.
If you’re new to “boundary setting,” it may help to meditate on them in the mornings — maybe in conjunction with an intention-setting practice—until they simply become part of the way you think and act. “When you ‘are’ a person with clear boundaries,”Nasserzadeh says,”you don’t need to ‘do’ boundary-setting every day.” Like proper nutrition and exercise, it becomes another part of your lifestyle.
4. Start a discussion about setting limits.
There’s no one way to talk about your boundaries. Perhaps arguments, let’s say, about how you both plan to cancel plans (tbh, great) can come organically, while others, such as needing to agree before your partner tries something masochistic in the bedroom, might require a more proactive statement.
One way to have these kinds of conversations is to first ask your partner how he feels about certain issues, says Lawrence. Is texting during the day fun or uncomfortable? Is the canceled date easily forgivable or completely offensive? Feelings of public kisses? “It can feel artificial because it’s n a conversation we’re used to having, unless our boundaries have been violated,” Lawrence nes. But it will be easier. “It may seem more natural over time and you do it your way.”
5. Lead by example.
It’s n enough to just talk about your boundaries. You also need to act like someone who deserves respect. “When you deeply respect yourself, it manifests itself in certain behaviors,” says Nasserzadeh. For example, is your partner always served first at dinner? Are you always the one to adjust your schedule when there’s a conflict? “Be careful if you keep sending signals that you are in second place,” he advises.
6. Use a scale of 1 to 10 to indicate crossing the border.
Sometimes the borders cross. It’s how you handle that violation that can makeobreak a relationship. First, avoid addressing the misstep in the heat of the moment, Andinstead, raise your concern when you’re both calm. “If the person you meet is always a few minutes late and bothers you, you need to be polite but firm, not to say it, briefly or jokingly,” says Nasserzadeh.
He recommends using a scale of 1-10 to explain how important each point is to you. Saying,”Ugh, it’s so annoying that you’re always late” likely won’t result in any significant changes. Saying,”On a scale from 1 to 10,promptness is an 8—that’s how important it is to me” should do the trick.
Opposites often attract, but here’s how to stay together for the long term:
7. Use self-disclosure and other therapist-approved conversation techniques.
Start the conversation with a “scene setting,” suggests Lawrence, which means getting mad at something you value in a relationship. You might open with,”You’re very important to me, so I want to tell you the truth,” for example. Then, name the behavior you’d like to change using “I” statements to explain how that action (or inaction)—n person – makes you feel. Maybe you say,”I feel frustrated when you say you’ll pay the bills, Andthen you don’t send in the money.” Na konc poproś or zmianę zachowania. For instance: “I want you to follow through when you say you’ll do X.”
8. Recognize that discomfort is normal – and somehow culturally imposed.
Bycie asertywnym może być nwygodne po części dlatego, że kobiety są zazwyczaj socjalizowane, aby być bardziej pasywne, mówi Lawrence. “Qualche volta, we have to get over the way we’re socialized n to speak up on our own behalf.”
But when you do, it will pay off. “It can be really freeing—it’s showing that you respect yourself, Andit’s showing how you expect to be treated,” she says. “It can really create the wonderful structure of a healthy relationship.”

Wyznaczan granic w romantycznych związkach
1. Focus on your feelings
When we start dating someone new, we sometimes forget to disconnect. It is normal to communicate with each other when n together but communicating all the time isn’t. Take some time apart from each other and focus on when you’re going outohow many times should you talk to each other daily.
The problem comes when we become so entangled with the other’s feelings that we forget about ours. Taking some time to reflect and check-in with yourself can help you differentiate between your and the other person’s feelings.
2. Komunikacja jest koncznością
The most important part of any healthy relationship is communication. When needed, use “I” statements to tell your partner what you think is appropriate and what’s n. If your partner is verbally offensive and rude then they are crossing a line which you can’t accept – let them know that in a non-threatening and respectful way.
A breach in the boundaries that you’ve set isn’t acceptable and it should be known to your partner. If you’re in a relationship where your partner is repeatedly breaking the boundaries you’ve set, then you should rethink your relationship.
3. Wykroić trochę „czasu dla mn"
Being in a novel relationship is exciting but most people don’t realize that spending all their time with their partner isn’t healthy. Czasami spędzan czasu z partnerem może wzbudzać uczucia takie jak gnw i frustracja, a zanim się zorientujesz, granice mogą zostać przełamane.
Spędzan czasu ze sobąjest tak samo ważne jak spędzan czasu z partnerem. “My time” is the best way to understand what you’re feeling and what is needed. Kiedy czujesz, że granice zostały przekroczone, poświęć trochę czasu na przegrupowan. Communicating with your partner when you’re calm will yield better results.
Angry words can’t be taken back, remember that. So before you say something that you’ll regret, take some “me time” to calm down.
4. Impara quando dire "NO"
When you’re dating, all you want is to please your partner and in doing this many people forget to tell their partner "no". To pragnn zadowolenia może być intensywne i może sprawić, że poczujesz się nkomfortowo. All relationships are based on the ‘give and take’ concept and you need to learn when it’s time to give and when to take.mówiąc „n"for your partner it’s best.
Saying "no" when you need to n only establish a boundary but it also allows your partner to respect your choices. Tell them when you’re uncomfortable, be honest with them, Anddon’t do anything just to please them.

Setting boundaries no? come easilyonaturally to a lot of people, but you can learn to set healthy boundaries. I’m going to share ten tips that I find helpful.
In my last post, What Are Healthy Boundaries and Why Do I Need Them ?, I told you about my friend Chris who struggled to set boundaries with his neighbor. Chris’ experience demonstrated thatwe need boundaries in all of our relationships, Andthat boundaries establish expectations and communicate how wewant to be treated.
- Karla and Mark have two young children. Mark’s parents have a new dog that seems aggressive, Andhe no? feel comfortable with the dog around his children. Mark tells his parents that their dog isn’t welcome at his house and he will n bring his kids to their house unless the dog stays in the garage.
- A roommate agreement (the concept isn’t as ridiculous as it seems on The Big Bang Theory) that identifies expectations about cleaning, food, Andnoise.
- Mówien szefowi, że n możesz dziś pracować do późna.
- Having a personal policy of n loaning money to family members.
1. Clearly define your boundary.
Wyraźn wyjaśnij sobie, jaka jest granica, którą musisz ustawić. Do you need your mother to stop calling all togetherocan she call you under certain circumstances? If you are not clear, you will not be able to communicate your expectations. A wishy-washy boundary is n effective. Poświęć czas na zastanowien się, czego potrzebujesz, zanim podejmiesz działania.
2. Understand why you need a boundary.
This is your motivation for setting the boundary. If you don’t have a compelling reason, why will you keep setting a boundary that is outside your comfort zone?
3. Be simple.
Dont be crypticopurposefully vague thinking youre going to spare someones feelingsoavoid a conflict. Najmilszym i najskutecznjszym podejściem jest bycie withoutpośrednim. Say what you mean and what you say.
4. Dont apologizeogive long explanations.
This kind of behavior undermines your authority and gives the impression that youre doing something wrong that requires an apologyojustification.
5. Use a calm and polite tone.
Trzymaj swój gnw w ryzach. Don’t try to set boundaries in the middle of an argument. You want your message to be heard. Yelling, sarcasm, oa condescending tone all put others on the defensive and distract from the real issues.
6. Start with tighter limits.
It is always easier to loosen narrow edges than to tighten wide edges. I see so many people making this mistake.
When you meet a new friendostart a new job, naturally you want to make a good impression, be agreeable, Andfit in. As a result youre likely to over-extend yourself, agree to commitmentsoviewpoints that dont sit well with you. People-pleasing results in looseoweak boundaries that are hard to tighten up later.
For example, set a clear expectation with your ex that you don’t want her to come to your home when she gives the kids back. From this firm boundary, it’s easy to invite her later if you find it appropriate. Dużo trudnj jest jej późnj powiedzieć, że n może wejść, kiedy początkowo dałeś jej withoutpłatny dostęp do swojego domu.
7. Naruszenia granic adresowych wcześn.
Small problems are always easier to manage. Don’t wait for someone to cross your border a dozen times before speaking. Its n fair to assume that others know your boundaries until youve explained them. Nor is it fair to change the rules and abruptly tell your cousin that youre n going to help pay her rentafter youve done it with a smile on your face for the past three months.
8. Don’t do it in person.
Wyznaczan granic n jest osobistym atakiem. Gina generously agreed to drive her coworker Maggie home while Maggie’s car is in the shop. Gina likes to leave promptly, so she’sgrown resentful that she’s waiting 10-15 minutes after shift as Maggie chats and socializes. After three days of this she snaps: “Maggie you’re really inconsiderate. Can’t you see I’m waiting for you? You’re so ungrateful! Prendi l’autobus per tornare a casa!” Notice the difference when Gina uses “personal bid” and skips a personal attack. “Maggie, I need to get home straight after work. I’m happy to give you a ride, but I can’t wait more than five minutes for you. So, if you need more time, I won’t be able to drive you home.”
9. Use the support system.
It’s hard to start setting boundaries! It can bring up a lot of questions, uncomfortable feelings, Andself-doubt. Posiadan systemu wsparcia jest nocenione, gdy robisz coś trudnego.
10. Trust your intuition.
Remember to slow down and tune into yourself. Pay attention to what you hear. What does your instinct tell you? If it feels wrong, change it.
Przestrzegan tych dziesięciu kroków pomoże ci ustalić i utrzymać zdrowe granice. And remember that healthy boundaries are n only good for you, but they’re good for everyone.
Borders are needed in every relationship. They help you determine the level of vulnerability you’re comfortable sharing for both you and your partner. But what are personal boundaries, Andhow do you define them in your relationship?
Personal boundaries are limits you set around your body, physical places, emotions, financial information, Anddigital spaces. We determine what we choose to share with our partners, Andour partners choose what they want to share with us. Trust and respect are significant components to maintaining boundaries in a relationship, Andit’s up to you to decide what makes you feel most comfortable. Pressure from a partner to redefine your limits is n okay, Andyou have the choice to decide what feels right for you at any point in your relationship.
We asked for our love of respect for followers in a survey:„Jakie granice są najważnjsze do ustalenia?"
The highest response we heard from our audience was"Tutti i confini!"

Istnje kilka rodzajów granic, które możemy stworzyć:
Digital borders are limitations created around your computer, social media, cell phone, Andonline profiles. This can include digital communication, such as sexting, direct messages, Andposting on social media. Before talking to your partner, determine how you feel and what makes you feel most comfortable.
Pomyśl o pytaniach takich jak „Czy czuję się komfortowo, gdy publikują mn na ich profilach w mediach społecznościowych?” Or “Do I want our relationship status to be public?” Knowing the answers to these kinds of questions can help you communicate your limits clearly and help your partner understand how to stick to them.
Ważne jest równż, aby stworzyć granice wokół dostępu do kont i marittobu, w jaki zdecydujesz się komunikować ze swoim partnerem. Even if you trust your partner completely, you do n have to share your passwords if you decide n to.
Physical boundaries are the limitations you set around your body, your home, Andplaces you visit frequently. These boundaries can help you determine your comfort level with physical touch and intimacy, your limits around public displays of affection, Andwhen physical contact begins to feel harmful. Understand what is convenient for you and express it to your partner.
Emotions can run high in a relationship, Andsometimes you may feel angry about a situation involving your partner. Ale nauka radzenia sobie z emocjami może pomóc ci oczyścić umysł i racjonaln dyskutować o problemach. Disagreements are natural and are bound to happen in any healthy relationship; however, any physical harm during an argumentoat any point is never okay.
Financial boundaries are limitations around your income, bank account, credit cards, Andother areas surrounding money. If you are comfortable discussing how much money you makeosharing your bank account information, feel free to be open with your partner.
However, sharing bank account information, discussing how you spend your money, oallowing access to your credit cards is unnecessary, especially if you do n feel comfortable talking about such details. If you live with your partner, it is vital that you have an honest conversation about your monthly expenses and what you think you can afford. But that does n mean you need to share every aspect of your financial situation. Money is a very sensitive topic, Andit is okay n to share all of your information with your partner.
Emotional boundaries are limitations surrounding your feelings, vulnerability, Andtrust. These boundaries help you determine which part of your heart you want to share with your partner. As your relationship deepens, decide what emotional support looks like for you. Discuss what consistency means to the both of you, Anddo your best to show up for each other. Budowan zaufania i stawan się bardziej wrażliwym wymaga czasu i zależy wyłączn od Ciebie. Don’t rush these moments. Feel free to open up when you feel comfortable sharing parts of you that are sensitive.
