Boundaries Are Hard

Published: 05/04/21

“Boundaries are hard!” Is something I’ve heard myself say countless times.

Right now, I’m trying to find that sweet spot of boundaries in terms of time. I have a project I’m working on, but I’ve been ignoring it in favour of spending time with precious friends.

It’s difficult to decide what the right call is in terms of boundaries. If I’m too rigid with my work schedule, I’ll feel I’m missing out on life experience and the chance to nourish the connections in my life. But if I always let myself be taken away in the social wave, then I’ll feel like I’m missing out on the progression of my own pursuits.

I think I’m often looking for an open and shut solution to this problem. Some kind of rule I can always apply that will mean I won’t feel this tension any longer. But as usual, it’s not as simple as that.

There’s no right answer when it comes to how we spend our time, so it follows that we can’t apply a rule that applies to every situation. We have to decide these things on a case-by-case basis, and then do our best to accept the decision we’ve made.
