BOUNDARIES Simplifying Your Life Part Three

Boundaries are such an important part of living a stress free life and so many of us have never really learned how to set them. Boundaries are like fences. They keep people and things out of your life that might cause stress, grief or hurt you. Many of us fear setting boundaries because we are afraid that others will not like or accept us if we do. We have a serious case of people pleasing often at the detriment of your family and yourself. If I could buy each of you a copy of the book boundaries I would do so but please know that I HIGHLY recommend it and will place it on the list of books that you have a choice of if you win the giveaway on March 1st.

Post and tell me an area where you KNOW you need to apply boundaries but have trouble doing so. Go into as little or as much detail as you wish. OR if you are doing well with boundaries in your life post and tell me how.

Two people that post will be chosen to receive one of their choice of the following books on March 1st and one person will receive a beautiful journal for a total of three giveaways.
1. Margin by Richard Swenson
2. Organizing from the Inside Out by Julie Morgenstern
3. Eliminate Chaos by Larua Leist

  1. Where I need to set boundaries is with my husband's family. Most recently it's been a case of jealousy among his brothers towards him. We live 3 hours away and according to them the only reason we go up there is to kiss butt to get things out of his dad. Now it's to the point they are going so far as telling everyone we're too consumed with our own lives to call or get together. Everytime we're there 100% of our time goes to family. For the first time ever we asked to have a couple hours alone to shop or whatever. That was made into a big stink. I hardly see him and be with him alone, I need to set boundraries when we go up there that they don't own him, he still has to have time for me and him. I hate that their so controlling. Sorry needed to vent! Thank you!
