You know that feeling deep inside that something is missing?
That sense that you were meant for so much more than just going through the motions of each day? We understand. We’ve been there too. By learning to tap into and trust your own inner resources for self-regulation and mindfulness, you will be able to overcome what’s been holding you back, unlock passion and purpose, and live life on your own terms.
Here are 3 leading causes of lack of boundaries and self-sabotage:
1. Unhealed Childhood Trauma: Past emotional, mental, physical or sexual abuse and neglect in childhood can severely impact our sense of self-worth and boundaries later in life. We may tolerate unacceptable behaviors or not know how to set healthy limits. Healing core trauma through counseling can be hugely transformational.
2. People-Pleasing Tendencies: Many of us feel anxious about displeasing others and use people-pleasing as a coping mechanism. This causes us to say yes when we mean no, resulting in resentment and the inability to express authentic feelings and needs. Breaking free of co-dependency restores self-trust.
3. Fear of Confrontation: Due to wanting to avoid tense conversations or come across as impolite, we frequently don’t speak up when someone violates our values or boundaries. Building assertiveness to face needed conflicts directly, yet compassionately, is so important. Our mental well-being depends on it.
The first steps are self-awareness about these tendencies and making an intentional commitment to yourself to enforce your emotional and energetic boundaries, whatever it takes. You deserve harmony and respect. Our strategies can help overcome the obstacles in your way.
