Emotional Boundaries Worksheet
What is the theory behind this Emotional Boundaries Worksheet?
Setting personal boundaries is necessary to maintain a healthy relationship with others. It also serves to protect oneself from being used by another for their own benefit or allowing others to trample on one’s self-esteem and confidence. Emotional boundaries refer to how we allow others to treat us.
How will the worksheet help?
This worksheet can help individuals to begin defining what emotional boundaries they need to have. It will help them reflect on how they are affected by the behaviour or attitude of a close loved one, what they can do to convey how it makes them feel and why they need to set emotional boundaries in this relationship.
How to use the worksheet?
To be able to begin setting emotional boundaries in a relationship, one has to be aware of what they can and cannot tolerate in terms of the other person’s behaviour or attitude. Answer the questions in the worksheet to create your own emotional boundaries and come up with a plan to implement it.
