In this episode we do a deep dive into our exploration of boundaries, what that even means, how we know when our boundaries have been crossed, and what we do with it. In a vulnerable and raw discussion, we share some of the trickiest boundaries to navigate; boundaries with family members and our romantic partners....It's definitely a work in progress and evolves as we evolve.
Inanda shares that her boundaries with her family are constantly moving and evolving as she is in each situation and the challenge of figuring out when and how to hold a boundary with them. As things show up with her family, she looks at it and asks herself, How do I want to hold my boundaries here? Her process keeps her in the present moment and allows the boundary to be fluid to fit the situation.
Valerie has recently discovered that she can have boundaries with family members! Boundaries, or the lack of them, can come from conditioned beliefs around authority, tribal law, our childhood wounding, and inherited family belief systems, among other things. The lack of boundaries bumps up against living from our Sovereign Self and exercising our personal power and creating our own boundaries can be a practice of self love and safety.
When we practice holding our boundaries, we can come from a more aware place, practice seeing from different lenses, listen to what is being shared and perhaps agree to disagree, which ultimately holds our boundary as well as respecting other's boundaries.
Our ask today is: Do you have boundaries and if so, how do you know when they have been crossed? What is your practice around navigating and holding healthy boundaries?
Give it a listen and send us your thoughts around holding healthy boundaries in your relationships. We would love to hear your feedback as we are definitely in a real and evolving practice of holding boundaries as an expression of self love and respect.
