Are you able to say “no” to your friends and family?
Can you establish healthy boundaries in your relationships? Or are your bad boundaries sabotaging your REAL LOVE story? (among other relationships)
In this week’s episode of the Real Love Revolution video series, we are diving deep into a topic many people struggle with: Boundaries! If you don’t know how to establish and maintain healthy, authentic boundaries in your relationship, your partner can’t satisfy your needs or true desires because you aren’t clearly expressing them.
Bad boundaries strain personal relationships and the accumulation of frustration plus miscommunication ultimately creates resentment later on. They can also keep you in a victim mentality. This mindset makes you believe it is everyone else’s fault for not understanding what you want. Here’s the reality – if you don’t create clear boundaries for yourself in all of your relationships, you can’t expect the people in your life to know what you want or don’t want. Healthy boundaries allow for an equal partnership where both the power and responsibilities are shared.
You can’t have real love without really explicit and healthy boundaries! @terri_cole (Click to Tweet!)
