Irene's Secret Tips, Products, and Interviews Geared Towards Showing Adolescent Girls How to Thrive and Excel in Our Cultural Times!

           Boundaries can be very difficult to define. A
           boundary is a limit that promotes integrity.
           At the most elemental level, your skin marks
           your physical limits. If it is ripped, the integrity of
           your body is threatened. Your cells hold their shape
           because a membrane contains them. Your nerves are
           sheathed. Your brain is protected by blood and bone.
           A boundary is a limit that you set, in order to
           protect the integrity of your day, your energy and
           spirit, the health of your relationships, and the
           pursuits of your heart.  Each day is shaped by your
           choices. When you violate your own boundaries or let
           another violate them, the stuffing spills out of your
           A boundary is like a membrane that keeps an
           organism intact. It lets positive things through. It
           keeps harmful things out. In this way, it operates
           quite differently from a defence, which keeps
           everything out.
           Boundaries provide a clear moral compass as well.
           They keep us on track. They protect the important,
           tender parts of our selves.
           If there are parts of your life that aren’t
           working, its because you don’t have proper
           boundaries in place. Make sure that you develop as
           many boundaries as possible in order to protect
           yourself from the elements of harshness and
           meanness in the world.
