Not to get all mathematical on you here but – 50/50 PEOPLE. Healthy boundaries – we know that by establishing them we are doing ourselves a favor. We are honoring and respecting our values, our limitations, the extent to which we can go the distance, or withstand a behavior, a person, an experience or a moment.
But establishing healthy boundaries is also about learning to recognize the moments when your boundaries are being crossed, right? Maybe you’ve been giving 75% when someone else in the situation is giving 25%.
Now I know for myself, this is applicable to romantic relationships – but maybe for you, it’s a work colleague, maybe it’s a family member, maybe it’s a friend. The beauty of establishing healthy boundaries is that you take back the power and the awareness to recognize when the balance in your relationships is uneven.
And hey, maybe it’s not 50/50 – maybe it’s just getting to a point where you don’t feel drained, where you don’t have to try so hard, where you don’t feel like you’re doing all the work, where you aren’t doing all the work, where you feel heard. It’s whatever feels “equal” or “even” or “content” or “balanced” to you. Have you ever found yourself in a 75/25 situation? How did you overcome it?
