Dear Colette – On Communicating Boundaries

Dear Colette,

What tools do you use to stay firm in your boundaries? How did you get there? Is it always something to reaffirm?

-C

 

Dear C,

The most powerful tool/practice I use to stay firm in my boundaries is “non-violent communication.”

How I got “here” in my skill boundary expression is by practicing expressing my boundaries without judgment whenever an opportunity arises.

And yes it is something you should reaffirm every time you feel like it’s not clear to the other what your boundaries are.

I also recorded a longer answer for you. I hope this helps.. 🙂
