Minimalism can be applied in various areas of our lives. Most people associate minimalism with having fewer material things. Foundationally, minimalism is a frame of mind. Setting healthy boundaries is a form of minimalism. It allows us to be free from chains and compromising our overall well-being.
In order to set healthy boundaries effectively, we have to first be able to identify what our boundaries are. Understanding our likes, dislikes, standards, non-negotiables, goals, among other things are necessary in order for us to discern when those lines are being crossed. We can also partly rely on our emotions to guide us in assessing patterns of discomfort.
I find the most powerful way to set healthy boundaries is to be assertive. Doing so yields favorable results. It is necessary to communicate our needs, standards, and grievances to friends, family, and applicable professional associates. There will either be a compromise, even if it happens over time, or the relationship will dissolve. Both results reveal the potential of the dynamic.
