Dua Lipa’s new single New Rules has been stalking me lately (which is ok, it’s pretty catchy). All of a sudden though over the weekend it hit me, the lyrics aren’t just about boundaries in romantic relationships but all relationships. We “breakup” with people in all sorts of ways – suppliers, clients, friends – and whilst I feel I have a pretty good instinct about the breakup process itself, post break up boundaries are an area of growth.
Setting boundaries aren’t easy, especially if you are holding guilt about the breakup. They are however important – for your ability to grow and to your sanity. So take some advice from Dua and practice until you’ve learned it by heart.
