As women we often think that setting boundaries mean we are being difficult, whereas this boundaries act as an important way of ensuring and building your safety, dignity, and autonomy. If we deny ourselves of healthy boundaries, we will end up setting these boundaries in an unhealthy way that we would regret in the long run.
You may or may not have heard that Naomi Osaka announced earlier this month that she would not be participating in the post-match news conference during the French Open because of how negative questions about her play will affect her mental health.
Naomi speaking up, was so brave of her. When it comes to mental health we need to understand and accept that what is comfortable for us may be difficult for others to understand, but it should stop us from speaking up when we need to protect ourselves. Let’s talk practical steps and lessons we took away from the Naomi Osaka news.
I really learnt a lot reading about the Naomi Osaka news and I hope we all learn a thing or two from this post. Remember, our mental health plays a huge role in our general well-being.
Have the most beautiful week!
