Nearly a year into marriage, we were overwhelmed with the amount of landmines we were stepping on in conflict.💥 We needed some “rules of engagement” that could help us navigate. Boundaries, you might say.
Have you thought about what it means to set boundaries in your relationships? 📝
#Boundaries are an important tool, as only you can teach people how to treat you, no matter what the relationship. In marriage, dating, engagement, family, friendships, and beyond, these are not meant to be rules that limit, but rather tools that give way to freedom, health, and deeper relationship. ❤️
Amidst the fighting and hurt we were perpetuating, we decided last year to define 7 “don’t” boundaries, along with 7 “do” actions to go along with them, not as rules, but as tools.
In today’s video, we are sharing our list with you! Friends, we have seen these work for us, and we encourage you to make a list of boundaries that help you!
Your challenge this week: give yourself a “do” in your boundaries to help you positively work toward active, healthy connection in your relationships.
