The Importance of Personal Boundaries

Personal boundaries are guidelines, rules or limits that a person creates to identify reasonable, safe and permissible ways for other people to behave towards them and how they will respond when someone passes those limits.—Wikipedia

Self love isn’t the same as being selfish. People that really love you understand that.

According to Lynne Namka, Ed. D, there are three types of people in our lives:

1) selfish people

2) don’t-care people

3) caring people: The only group of people that you don’t need to build boundaries.

It’s so important to recognize the different types of people in our lives. Each type reacts differently to boundaries.

Wishing you all a successful building of boundaries!

  1. Thank you for such an interesting and relevant post for me. At times in my life I have struggled more than others but I have definitely made progress in this area.
    I feel this post warrants some reflection in my journal.
    Thank you so much for sharing 🙂.


  2. Boundaries are so important in life because they can protect you from toxic people and their activities. It’s very interesting that you talked about boundaries as self care because I’d never really thought of it like that before. You’re so right, it isn’t being selfish it’s about looking after yourself and protecting you and your emotional well being. Thank you for sharing and I can’t wait to see more from you!
