The #1 Reason Why You Don’t Hold Your Boundaries

boundaries
 

I’ve said over and over that the secret to a life filled with connection, ease and joy is to create and hold boundaries. And there’s one big thing that generally gets in the way of holding those boundaries: having a victim mentality. In my almost 40 years of experience, working with thousands of people, this is an issue with almost every person I meet. Sometimes it’s a big issue, and sometimes it’s smaller, but it’s almost always there in some way. The problem is that this way of thinking seems so natural or right that you likely don’t even realize you’re doing it! You’re a fish who doesn’t know it’s wet! Today we’ll discuss the symptoms of a victim mentality (many will likely surprise you), why you might be this way and, as always, my top 7 tips for making lasting changes so you can create fulfilling, loving relationships.
