Does saying no make you uncomfortable or lead to ruminating thoughts?

Setting boundaries in your personal and professional lives can be challenging and overwhelming. It can feel uncomfortable to say ‘no’ or to establish limits with others. This is particularly common if you tend to avoid conflict and have people-pleasing tendencies. When you fail to set boundaries, you are prioritizing the needs of others rather than yourself. This can lead to feelings of overwhelm, resentment, and a deep sense that you are being taken advantage of.

Boundaries are an important part of any healthy relationship, be it with yourself or others. Therapy can help you learn to set boundaries in a way you feel confident about.
