Over time and in many ways, the idea of establishing boundaries has been explored. Typically, it is done by way of identifying things to do; behaviours to change; new strategies to put into play that will prevent your being pressed… bullied.. cajoled, shamed or provoked… into choices that are no longer a choice and have become the imperative of another, for you.
Consider that at higher levels of thinking, Identity is your most powerful boundary. Your authentic presence – open, clear, honest and direct – makes way for you to take a stand on your own behalf without struggle or conflict with another.
I can think of no more powerful boundary than: be yourSelf and tell the truth.
Below, is a brief excerpt from a conversation on just such an exploration. Perhaps you will find it to be meaningful and/or relevant for you, in some way.
