How to Set Boundaries With People You Love- What Are Boundaries?

Boundaries are a hot topic at Imagine Hope! We teach people daily about boundaries that can help them have healthy relationships. All relationships need boundaries that help teach us the rules and limits for being with each other.

Some boundaries are physical, which are related to how to engage physically together, our time with each other, and the space we need with each other.

There are also emotional boundaries, which are focused on how close we allow others to get and how much we give emotionally to a relationship.

Setting boundaries with people we care about can be the hardest. We don't want to hurt feelings or be mean. There are ways to communicate your boundaries well in a way that doesn't harm the relationship, but instead it actually strengthens it.

Read all week for more info that will guide you down the road of setting boundaries!
