My husband has been coming home late every day for the past 10 days extremely frustrated and tired. On asking him what was happening, he related how he was helping a colleague who was now taking him for granted and he was finding it difficult to say no.
I was on the metro the other day and I saw a guy push his way into a spot he wanted when there was enough space otherwise. If that was not enough, he then proceeded to watch somebody else’s smartphone and ask them questions about what they were watching!
I heard rumors being spread about a close colleague of mine. When I decided to let her know, she said, she is aware and she doesn’t want to know more. I don’t think she realized what and all can happen with malicious rumors. So, I kept sharing whatever I heard, hoping that she will take care of it. Eventually, I found her starting to be annoyed with me and avoid me. I am so mad. I was only trying to protect her.
Sounds like you or anyone you know? Maybe different contexts? Can’t say no… Can’t hear no…
You are not alone. More often than not, all our boundaries have been breached with or without our understanding that it has occurred. It is possible to make sense of it all.
Wahe Nadhi’s program, Drawing the Lines, intends to address this challenge. Through this program, we intend to facilitate -
Understanding of the various types of boundaries
Identifying when our boundaries are being breached
Making sense of why we breach or allow breaching of boundaries
Learning strategies to set personal boundaries that works for us
Learning to look at consequences of setting personal boundaries and how to cope with them
“Boundaries define me. They define what is me and what is not me. A boundary shows where I end and where someone else begins, leading me to a sense of ownership. Knowing what I am and take responsibility for gives me freedom”- Henry Cloud
