Have you ever been irritated or wounded by something your partner said or did?
Setting healthy limits can help you protect your emotional energy while deepening your relationship's connection.
Boundaries are the limits we set for ourselves regarding expectations, availability, and energy. Boundaries prevent us from overcommitting or feeling resentful since they indicate how we think. They also assist others in determining how to treat you.
They don't have to be harsh or combative. Setting boundaries allows us to be open with our spouse about our feelings, building a deeper, longer, and more enduring connection.
The word boundary has the connotation of pushing someone away. It's more accurately stated as an invitation for your spouse to discover more about you and your requirements.
