Reclaim Your Peace With This Guide to Setting Boundaries
Setting boundaries is an idea that sounds like fresh air, but when it comes time to use it, procrastination intervenes, making the search for peace difficult and difficult.
In his first book, “Set Boundaries, Find Peace: Self-Determination,” Nedra Glover Tawwab, A relationship specialist and co-founder of Kaleidoscope Counseling, weaves together personal and professional stories, supported by research to explain the limitations and how your self-expression brings peace in your daily life.

“When I talk about boundaries, I’m talking about what defines your relationship. What makes you feel safe, comfortable; What are the stages of your relationship? “Tawwab says. “In my career, I began to see this in our inability to ask what we want in a relationship – whether affiliation, family, relationships, at work – and most people are burning, tired, frustrated and angry because of limitations.”
Tawwab suggests that saying “no” is just a small step toward lowering healthy limits, and that there is more to self-improvement and peace. “I’m also asking what you want, following the results, saying things that make you feel good, not just wasting your time,” she says.
Speaking of the guilt and conflict that comes with setting boundaries, Tawwab shares that it is a sign that you care and are sorry for the situation.
“There is no such thing as an innocent limit. If you set boundaries and suffer the consequences, it’s important to learn new ways to deal with guilt, ”she says. ”When you feel that way, how can you be sure that you are doing the right thing? Do you rely solely on how you take care of yourself? ”
