Boundaries make it safe for you to return to your senses –
and to return to your body.
Trauma often invades the boundaries that we call personal space.
Learning to make personal space choices – discerning who and what enters the boundaries of your personal space – is an integral part of post traumatic growth.
The personal space around you is like an energetic extension of your body.
Healthy boundaries are flexible.
You adjust them to meet your assessment of your present circumstances. Choosing where to set your boundaries provides the groundwork for real intimacy and trust to develop.
Boundaries are as much about saying yes
as they are about saying no,
maybe – wait a minute, I don’t know.
