My Boundaries Are My Responsibility

I’ve often heard people saying about others, “He needs to learn about boundaries,” meaning that he needs to learn not to overstep other people’s boundaries. To me, this seems like an inversion of the value and importance of boundaries. Boundaries are not a way that others can learn to read our minds and a way that we can label others when they fail to do so. Boundaries are invisible inner thresholds that only we can discern and protect.
