Personal Boundaries

Using the Personal Boundaries Assessment reading,  write a one page using the examples below write about one of the boundaries you struggle with.

” What are boundaries? The easiest boundary to define is the property line. Most people have seen a “No Trespassing” sign posted on private property at one time or another. This sign sends a clear message, “If you cross the line you will be prosecuted!”

This type of boundary is easy to picture and understand because it’s tangible; you can actually see and touch the sign.

On the other hand personal boundaries are harder to define because the lines are invisible; they can change and are unique to each individual.

Our personal boundaries are limits or borders that define where we end and others begin. Your personal boundary is defined by the amount of physical and emotional space you allow between yourself and others. Personal boundaries also help you decide what types of communication, behavior and interaction you accept from others. The types of boundaries you set define whether you have healthy or unhealthy relationships.
