Learn to identify what is right for you when it comes to money and the people in your life. Discover how to communicate firmly but respectfully and maintain healthy, loving financial boundaries.
- In my financial therapy practice,…I often work with people who are stuck…in a sort of internal debate.…Something doesn't feel right and that feeling…is very clear, but then the rationalization starts…and we try to argue that feeling away.…This is especially true…when it comes to our financial boundaries.…We know that our boundary is being crossed,…but we worry about the potential for conflict,…loss, or guilt if we address it.…Instead of trying to convince yourself that it's okay,…here are five ways to establish respectful,…loving, healthy financial boundaries.…
Number one, respond, don't react.…Notice when you're getting that uh-oh feeling,…this is very useful information…because that's what tells us…that we're approaching a boundary.…But remind yourself that acknowledging the feeling…doesn't obligate you to act on it.…You can begin by just noticing and being emotionally…honest with yourself.…Next, ask why that boundary is difficult to protect.…It's probably not just that the other person is needy.…Boundary issues often accompany self worth issues.…
