In Lifecoaching, setting boundaries is one of the cornerstones to our personal growth process. This usually is about being able to say no to who and what we don't want, whether it is to break out of a harmful past or not settle for less. It is also a matter of self-care to ensure our needs are met and we stay away from low energy people for example and not do something we don't want to. And it's also being able to say no to ourselves when needed, so we can go to sleep on time or get going on a project.
