I am still figuring out ways to communicate my boundaries to other people. I do think I lean toward the indirect approach, however, I do see the clarity that can come from directly saying "no" etc. I think one way to communicate boundaries is through requesting more time to think about something or to communicate your boundaries through your behaviour. For example, not attending certain events or spending too long in certain environments. By acting consistent with your boundaries, you come into alignment with your truth and the world around you must act accordingly.

I really relate to this one, I think I’m a midway former people pleaser. I said midway because I was never fully one and I think it’s because I was unsure of how to set boundaries, up until a few years ago. Motherhood further accelerated that for me. I almost weaponise it now, the ability to be firm in my decisions and be confident in the boundaries I’ve set for myself.

This is such an encouraging perspective and I've learnt so much from hearing your experience with this 🧡. Firmness and confidence in relation to decisions and boundaries - game changers 📈.
