Coaching, Mental Health, Personal Development, Work-Life Balance


Establishing boundaries is essential to self-care and professional development. Boundaries are like guardrails on the highway—they keep us from veering off course and provide a sense of safety, security, and stability. When we set limits for ourselves, we gain clarity about what we will or won’t accept in our lives. We become aware of the things that are within our control and those that aren’t, setting us up for success in all aspects of life.

But setting boundaries can be intimidating, especially if you don’t know where to start. That’s why it’s important to learn from experts who have mastered the art of setting healthy boundaries. Nedra Glover Tawwab is one such expert. She is a renowned relationship therapist who specializes in helping people establish their own personal boundaries and create healthier relationships with themselves and others.

In her work, Tawwab emphasizes the importance of setting boundaries from a place of self-love. She encourages people to set realistic expectations for themselves and to recognize when their limits have been crossed or violated. By doing so, we can create our own sense of security and gain clarity around what is within our control and acceptable in our relationships.

Understanding how setting boundaries works is key to feeling empowered and in control. It takes practice, patience and support but it’s worth investing the time in yourself – after all, setting boundaries is an act of self-care! So don’t be afraid – take charge of your life by setting boundaries today! You won’t regret it.
