Relationship CounsellingBoundaries


Being aware of our boundaries and limits is useful in our relationships and recovery. In fact, this awareness is crucial to having healthy relationships and a successful recovery. A boundary or limit is how far we can go with comfort in a relationship. It delineates where I and my physical and psychological space end and where yours begin. Boundary is a concept that provokes a real experience within us. Therefore, in my relationships with people, places and things, the boundary is real. My boundaries and limits are real. The other’s boundaries and limits are real.

boundariesFor a number of reasons, it may be useful to check out what your boundaries may be like now. You may have grown up in a family where healthy boundaries were neither modelled nor thought. You may have been – and may still be – in one or more relationships where you and others are unclear about boundaries and limits.

The following 10 statements will gauge your level of personal boundaries and limits.

  1. I have difficulty saying “no” to people
  2. I feel as if my happiness depends on others
  3. I find myself getting involved with people who end up hurting me
  4.  I would rather attend to others than attend to myself
  5. I would rather go along with another person or other people than express what I’d really like to do
  6. I spend my time and energy helping others so much that I neglect my own wants and needs
  7. I get angry
  8. I don’t get to spend much time alone
  9. I am overly sensitive to criticism
  10. I feel responsible for other people’s feelings
