As a Forty Plusser I know that boundaries are a form of empowerment, and a way for us to align with our identity, our desires, and where we stand in the world. When you don’t have boundaries, you are sending out a signal that you don’t know what you want, that you’ll take whatever you can get, and that you won’t put up a fight along the way.

When you don’t have boundaries, you feel like you are constantly living in a “doormat” mentality. Setting boundaries is a form of self-respect and self-love, it is not a punishment for others.
By respecting yourself enough to set the necessary boundaries in your life, you’ll discover a unique sense of freedom and peace of mind.
Make a promise to yourself to get in touch with your needed boundaries and practice enforcing them. ❤️

Absolutely!!!! It is much easier as a Forty Plusser to set boundaries.  I found it hard to set boundaries when I was young. I can say “no” now… with ease LOL!!  I have my boundaries for my emotional and mental well being, as well as physical, so if someone crosses one of my boundaries they get removed. I have often unfriended people for this exact reason.  

There is also another side of the story… Unless you’re the one removed.  It’s sometimes nice to be forgiven and get a second chance.

  1. I agree! I find it much easier now to say NO or to draw that line in the sand and if it is crossed then take a break from that person. Maybe a permanent break or maybe just a ‘holiday’ for awhile from them.As I am 71 I am well over 40 and those boundary skills just keep getting better.
