Notes from this week’s episode:

We now have boundaries round our houses, however we regularly wrestle to outline and preserve them round ourselves.
Boundaries are wanted round our bodily house, ideas and beliefs. All the things private to us is contained inside our private boundary.
Various kinds of boundaries:
Bodily: our private house, and privateness
Psychological: our ideas, beliefs, values, decisions, and opinions
Emotional: our feelings and private emotions
Bodily boundaries are extra apparent and normally simpler to uphold, however our psychological and emotional boundaries are equally necessary particularly after we’re making an attempt to handle stress and anxiousness.
Why we’d like boundaries
Wholesome boundaries scale back anxiousness by supporting self-respect and the appropriate to specific ourselves and our wants.
They provide us the liberty to stay our life as we see match based mostly on our private beliefs and values. Wholesome boundaries honor and assist our free will.
Boundaries shield us from management/being managed by others.
