During the life experience there are often times and situations which provide opportunities for improvement. Without realizing it, one can easily create a boundary. The difference between a boundary and a limitation is the difference between healthy and unhealthy life choices. A boundary is set psychology, usually unconsciously and is considered to be healthy in most cases. It occurs after you realize certain situations are no longer conducive to your growth as a human being, and if allowed, actually hinders self growth, paralyzing one's self. As an example; if you are living in a home environment where you are constantly criticized, as you grow older in to early adult hood you may find the criticism begins to hinder you and have a negative impact on your self worth. At one point the criticism may have been constructive, however, now when you hear it, you realize it is affecting you negatively. As a result, you create an unconscious psychological boundary. An example of how this may now manifest in your life; is upon getting into an intimate relationship, you may feel the relationship is not working when the person criticizes you. This may feel intolerable to you and eventually you find yourself breaking up with the person, as the criticism begins to manifest once again in a negative way on your self esteem. This is a healthy boundary you have created as you have learned the criticizing behaviors from others negatively impacts you, effecting your self worth. Creating the healthy boundary, is not letting others cross that boundary, as you become aware if they do, it will hinder you rather than help you.
