The Boundary Each Zodiac Needs To Set In December 2022

Healthy boundaries are good for you, whether you’re setting them with a partner, work, or the platonic loved-ones you keep around you. Yes, setting and enforcing boundaries can be hard, but it’s so worth it in the long run. Here are some boundaries you should set based on your zodiac sign.


You might need your boundaries loosened a bit, Aries. Rather than never asking for or accepting help, allow yourself to need others this December. It’s okay to need help. You don’t always need to be the one jumping to everyone’s rescue while accepting nothing in return.


This December, you should focus on parsing out your own feelings. It can be difficult when you’re in a relationship or have super opinionated friends because it can feel like their own feelings become your own. Make sure that others aren’t projecting their emotions onto you.


Don’t be afraid to ask for space this December. When you feel stifled by friends, family, or partners, you can sometimes take it out on them. No need to get nasty. Instead, value your free time by not letting it get filled beyond your breaking point.


Refuse to take the blame for things you didn’t do this December. There may be people in your life who will turn things back on you if you call them out on something. Don’t let them change the subject or turn you into the villain.


Okay, you love being invited to parties. You even love going to most of them. But you’re feeling spread thin this December with all the holiday parties. You don’t have to go to everything you’re invited to. Your real friends won’t judge you for being MIA a few times.


You have every right to dictate how you want arguments to go. If fiery conversations and raised voices are your kryptonite, by all means, set a boundary this December to only argue when you’ve both cooled off. Spice isn’t always nice.


This December, don’t be afraid to say no. Remember: No is a complete sentence. Don’t let people trample over this boundary or you will continue to be taken advantage of by people in your life who know they can manipulate you into doing what they want.


Exercise your right to privacy in December. It’s okay to keep your own thoughts and feelings to yourself, and it’s not cool for friends or family to shame you for not sharing your secrets. If they don’t respect that, then you might want to rethink things.


As soon as someone starts trying to dictate your schedule, you freeze up. There’s nothing wrong with enforcing a boundary that lets you be the master of your own time. You’re an adult, and no one is the boss of you. (Except your actual boss, of course.)


Set a boundary with yourself this December that you won’t do a million favors for anyone who asks. You judge yourself based on how much you help people. While that’s noble, you need to leave time for your own tasks as well. Your friends will survive just fine without you.


Alone time is precious. Whether you’re spending some time working on a project or you just want to decompress by yourself with a book and some hot cocoa, it’s not too much to ask to be left alone. You are a whole and complete person even when separate from everyone else around you.


It’s time to start kicking toxic people out of your life. I know that friendships are huge for you–often even bigger than family connections. But if someone just makes you feel bad about yourself every time you see them, if you can’t trust them, then they aren’t worth keeping around.
