In need of better boundaries with family during the holidays? Read this.

As Thanksgiving approaches and many of us head home to be with our families for the holiday, the perennial topic of boundaries may emerge for some.

Specifically, how to hold appropriate boundaries with loved ones and what to do if your boundaries keep getting dismissed, ignored, or outright crossed.

Now, I know, boundaries is one of those vague therapy terms that gets thrown around a lot but in this article, I break it down and give you some concrete examples of what healthy and less functional boundaries look like, and also share with you ways to improve your boundaries if you need to.

So, in this latest letter from the archive while on maternity leave series, I hope you find value in this article on personal boundaries and how to improve them if needed.

Warmly, Annie

    My therapist agrees with me that I have great and clear boundaries…then she chuckled and suggested I might want to soften the edges as they are razor sharp… and they are…never occurred to me they don’t need to be;-)

Do you come from a relational trauma background?
