Learn how to be aware of your relationships with others.

4. Becoming Consumed. Do you let yourself become so preoccupied with another person that you let other things fall by the wayside? When we feel insecure, the attention of another person can suddenly make us feel like we have value. You may find yourself ignoring other important things in life if this is the only way that you see yourself as being worthwhile. When those other things are ignored, it can feel as though your life is spinning out of control. If you are not aware of the imbalance of where your attention has been going, you may wonder why it is that nothing ever seems to work in your life. Balance is important and if all of your attention goes to one area, other areas will suffer. Creating Balance

These boundaries stress the importance of having awareness of your relationships with other people and what your needs in those relationships are. Remember, that it’s alright to protect yourself by setting limits with others. The people who respect those limits are the ones who have good boundaries themselves and who will add value, rather than take it, from your life. Why Respecting Boundaries Is Crucial, Part 2
