How to Set Internal Boundaries

How to Set Internal Boundaries

July 7, 2021

Struggling with boundaries? Setting internal boundaries makes it easier to have external boundaries with friends, family, work, lovers...you name it. Internal boundaries help us define ourselves to ourselves. They help us know what we like, don't like, how we feel, what we believe, our emotions, our spiritual sense. When we can clearly take responsibility for our internal physical, emotional, and mental experience, we can navigate the world easier. DON'T PANIC. We don't have this all figured out, either. But we do share our current experiences and terrific tools to help you set and maintain internal boundaries. We believe in you. You're doing great!
