The Cost of Boundaries
There is a cost to having boundaries, but more importantly there is a greater cost to not having them. If you would like to speak to me about how you can develop you own boundaries, or if you feel you struggle with the boundary violations of others and want some help with that then contact me at www.focusedlifecoaching.org.
You can also connect with me on Instagram or Facebook, as I will frequently post articles of interest to strengthen you professionally and personally.
My mission is to help professional women bring into harmony their lifestyle (health), livelihood (business), and love (relationships). To do so, boundaries are necessary.
Boundaries and Purpose
Are there some roles that you are operating in that are not comfortable for you? Could it be that they are outside your purpose? It can feel good that people admire you and your abilities, but if it causes you to say "yes" to things that you should be saying "no" to then you are putting yourself and perhaps others in jeopardy. We become at best ineffective, at worse, abusive when we start to take on things that are outside of our mission, purpose and competence.
I referenced a scene in the Little Mermaid, for those unfamiliar with it, you can view it here.
You can follow me on Instagram and Facebook. I hope you will take the time to identify your purpose and role in your important relationships and keep them clear and healthy.
Benefit of Boundaries
You have a lot to gain if you are able to establish and maintain good boundaries, professionally and personally. We will explore what you can gain in setting and maintaining healthy boundaries.
Have you been able to identify some positive changes you experienced when you set a healthy boundary? I would love for you to share them with me on Facebook. It may encourage other brave souls to take the risk of setting a healthy boundary for themselves.
Let me know what you were able to do and the positive outcome at here. Also visit me at Instagram and join the conversation.
No is a Complete Sentence
I have found "No" to be a powerful word, but it is difficult to say it directly. So I learned to say it creatively. "I appreciate your confidence in me, but I would recommend that you bring that task to X, they have the resources and availability to do it in the way that would serve you best." Just a wordy way of saying "No".
It takes bravery to sometimes just let the power of the word "No" do it's job. It is worth it if you can handle it and erect some needed boundaries in your life.

5 Part Relationship Reboot Episode 5
No relationship series would be complete if we didn't address conflict. In reality relationship can at times be difficult to maintain in a healthy manner. That is why I did this series. When there is tension and conflict, instead of trying to find a shiny new relationship, work on the one you are in. Because all new things eventually get old and will need to be maintained and repaired. So work on the original, or the one you are currently in. There are many wonderful resources out there, from relationship skills workbooks, relationship coaches and couples therapists. You need a couples therapist if there is any degree of domestic violence, or mental illness in either of the partners, otherwise a relationship coach can probably work well with two committed individuals who want to have a better relationship. If you are not sure which one you need, feel free to contact me through my website for a free consultation. Be blessed and remember Ephesians 4:11-13 Also, if two lie down together, they will keep warm. But how can one keep warm alone? Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves. A cord of three strands is not quickly broken.
