A crisis is a powerful motivator to make changes in our life. It creates a sense of urgency to move our life in a new and better direction. A solid starting point is to set well defined boundaries. Boundaries bring balance into our life. Well defined boundaries shape the direction and content of our life and relationships. It is a decision that makes us the agent of control. Start by practicing the following behaviors:
Step # 1 Connect with the power of the word “no” and the phrase “I cannot”. It is important to actively integrate both into your vocabulary.
Step# 2 Keep your radar up and functioning. Learn to recognize people and relationships that define you by their needs. Be creative. Design a plan to avoid and limit contact with them. Make sure to include family members and significant others past and present in the plan.
Step# 3 Launch a campaign to connect with new people who bring as much to a relationship as they take away.
Soon boundaries become like breathing. A powerful force that supports us in life. It is just that simple. margiesdaughter.com
