I love a little time spend scrolling through my Instagram feed. Here are 10 of my favorite posts about boundaries.

#1. –  To Honor Me

The lesson that boundaries are about you, and not about the other person can be a difficult one to sink in. Still, it is something that has to become part of your very being.

#2. – Energy Overload

When your boundaries are crossed, you may feel drained or overwhelmed. That is because the energy of other people interferes with your own. So, center your energy before letting people back in.


#3. – Important Lines To Draw

None of the boundaries are selfish or weird. They really should be part of your self-care practice.


#4. – Happiness I Am Responsible For

Of course, you want the people you love to be happy, and you will certainly contribute to that. You are however not responsible for their happiness, just like they are not responsible for yours.


#5. – Energy Vampire

Maybe you can try sticking those fangs under your pillow… just in case the tooth fairy has a use for them 😜


#6. – Listen

Trust your intuition when it comes to your boundaries. The more you listen, the more accurate it will become!


#7. – Until People Have Crossed Them

It’s okay to learn where your boundaries are through trial and error. That also means it is okay to enforce boundaries you didn’t use to have… you are allowed to grow, learn and heal.


#8. – No

No is a complete sentence and one that can really set you free!


#9. – Priority

You really need to make it to the top of your list. You cannot take care of anyone or anything else if you are not taking care of yourself.


#10. – On Fire

Like I said (but I felt it bore repeating) you need to look after yourself. That’s why boundaries are so very important. You need to protect yourself in every way necessary, in order to be happy and in order to contribute to the lives of those you love.


we love to read your comments below

While I may technically be the Director here at SwanWaters, my unofficial title is Healing Cheerleader! I’m a survivor of childhood emotional abuse and workplace bullying. And believe me when I say that I’ve walked the walk when it comes to healing from trauma. I firmly believe that we can undo some of the damage that abuse has done to us, and learn the necessary skills to handle life and all it brings us.
