I have been learning to set more boundaries in my life over the past year. I often feel unsure of myself, but I feel like I am recognizing a lot of unsatisfying relationships in my life and I'm not sure how to deal with them. I've ended the most of the ones that I felt were not healthy or balanced in terms of being mutually beneficial. But because so many of my relationships were unhealthy and unbalanced, I now feel like I've pushed everyone away. I'm not sure if I am going from one extreme to another, and perhaps I will eventually settle somewhere closer to the middle? I feel so unsure of myself, and I find this whole business of boundary setting to be really painful and tiring. I feel like I am growing and doing something good for myself; however, I feel exhausted and lonely.
