In general, settings one's personal boundaries (as well as maintaining them), be it physical, mental, or emotion, can be uncomfortable and difficult. When one has dealt with stigma and self-stigma that undermine's one's judgement, it can be moreso, especially if some of one's symptoms arise from being violated, such as from an abusive relationship, child abuse, or other situations where one's individual identity and sense of self are not respected (or even acknowledged). Such situations can result in one not feeling comfortable asserting themself, feeling extreme risk doing so, or not even realizing they can.
As discussed on the Self-Expression page, being who one is and exploring those boundaries can take various forms, and can also come with risks, as discussed on the Belief in Self page. However, the rewards that can come with getting more in touch with and being true to oneself can bring more independence, a greater sense of security, self-respect, and healing. In addition, individuals with psychological conditions have accomplished and achieved many notable things, and been people one may not expect; for more, please see the Inspiration page.
