It is only very recently that I have come to understand what personal boundaries actually mean. Before that it was just an abstract expression that I could not really apply to my own life. Yesterday was one of those days when I felt the need to protect myself. To protect my newly found belief in the importance of my own self-care.

There is a tiger that lives in my stomach. When I feel treated unfairly or when someone asks me for a favour at work which makes me feel used and disrespected it awakens. The tiger roars and shows itself in all of its greatness and splendour. I do my best to wait for him to calm down, so that I can formulate my words wisely and not under the influence of intense emotions.

It feels really good to define and state my boundaries. I owe that to myself. It’s part of self-love after all. And it keeps the tiger happy 😊.

  1. I can totally relate to this. Before, the concept of establishing personal boundary is something I find so difficult to fathom. It took me years and some hard life lessons to truly understand its importance. Great post! 🙂

  2. Haha I love the tiger analogy. I feel the same way!! Setting boundaries is such an important lesson to learn. One that took me so much longer to learn than I’d like to admit!! Loved this ❤️
