    Boundaries help you to define what you are comfortable with and how you would like to be treated by others. They apply to any kind of relationship you have, whether with yourself, a friend, family member, partner or anyone else in your life. Good or healthy boundaries help to make sure you are respected and protected, while unhealthy boundaries seek to control or harm you and others. You deserve to be safe and respected, and boundaries play a big part in creating healthy relationships that let you be yourself.

    It is normal for boundaries to shift and change as we gain more life experience or get more comfortable in our relationships. You might not be okay with something at the beginning of a relationship, but you might be comfortable with it a few months down the line. On the other hand, we might realize something crosses a boundary for us after experiencing it for the first time. Every person has the right to change their mind about what their boundaries are at any time. It is important that you are communicating any boundary changes to your partner, friends, or family members. It is never okay to be pressured, forced or manipulated into making changes to your boundaries, so make sure that you are making changes because you want to.

    Only you can define what boundaries are healthy for you. You may think about what makes you feel comfortable and uncomfortable. You can think about the behaviors and traits that are important to you and those that are unacceptable for you. You can also think about boundaries you would like to set that have to do with your privacy. For more information, visit http://www.loveisrespect.org
