How to establish healthier boundaries

Follow these steps to more effectively establish healthy boundaries between yourself and others.

1. Identify the symptoms of your boundaries currently being or having been violated or ignored.

2. Identify the irrational or unhealthy thinking and beliefs by which you allow your boundaries to be ignored or violated.

3. Identify new, more rational, healthy thinking and beliefs which will encourage you to change your behaviors so that you build healthy boundaries between you and others.

4. Identify new behaviors you need to add to your healthy boundary building behaviors repertoire in order to sustain healthy boundaries between you and others.

5. Implement the healthy boundary building beliefs and behaviors in your life so that your space, privacy and rights are no longer ignored or violated. ​
