Signs of Unhealthy Boundaries Part 3

Teri and Tamara have given us many signs of unhealthy boundaries in ourselves and in our relationships. Are you identifying with any of them in your life? Here are a few more:

  • Taking as much as you can get for the sake of getting
  • Giving as much as you can give for the sake of giving (people pleasing)
  • Allowing someone to take as much as they can from you
  • Letting others direct your life
  • Letting others describe your reality
  • Letting others define you

I have not personally completed this book but it was a recommendation from a client who felt it was helpful: Boundary Power: How I treat you, How I let you treat me, How I treat myself (Workbook), by Mike O'Neil and Charles Newbold. Joleen will finish up tomorrow with more signs and a recommendation. Thanks for reading.
