We all have our boundaries. What we share in our lives, with whom, and when are indicators of our boundaries. Essentially, boundaries determine what we let in and out of ourselves...emotionally, psychologically, spiritually, and even physically. Relationships also need boundaries. We need to know what to expect in the relationships with our friends, coworkers, and romantic partners/spouses. Healthy personal and relational boundaries are those that are clear, realistic, firm, but also flexible when needed. Healthy relationships include respect for each individual’s personal boundaries, while also maintaining mutually agreed upon relational boundaries.
