Essay: "Personal Boundaries"

by Jesus Sanchez
Improving Oneself

I believe in having personal boundaries. Personal boundaries help me in all kinds of ways. Without them, my life would be a complete mess. Personal boundaries, for example, have helped me built character. When I joke with someone I have a stopping time, and I don't go on and on, creating discomfort for the other person. Moreover, setting personal boundaries is decision-making, or drawing the line, knowing where to say no in situations that can cost you a lot, like losing friendships, jobs, promotions and even someone's life. In conclusion, setting personal boundaries is not neglecting yourself but improving oneself to avoid a fall. That's why I set them on myself.
