We don’t share a boundary because we want control. We share a boundary because we have surrendered control. We accept our relationships as they are, no more, no less. Communicating a healthy a boundary is a bid for love. It is a byproduct of disengaging from the chaos and drama that may have been before.
If you are new to boundaries, but you are curious— I want to encourage you.
Boundaries aren’t selfish, mean, or insensitive.
Don’t believe me? I get that. But I promise you, if you begin the practice of setting healthy boundaries, your relationships will benefit. After all, our relationships can only be as healthy as their limits. Anything less than that is breeding ground for anxiety, bitterness and resentment.
