6Set Those Boundaries Today

Healthy relationships thrive on clear-cut boundaries. A person with strong boundaries understands that both partners need a right to their privacy and “me-time.” When boundaries are laid out and adhered to, though it might take some time for things to become smooth, it would lead to better relationships with greater understanding. Each partner would get an opportunity to grow and evolve whilst receiving love and support from the other partner. This would lead to the understanding that it is okay to not feel love sometimes due to various reasons.

When you begin to love yourself,  you appear more attractive to your partner as you do not seem love-starved. Ultimately, only you are responsible for your happiness. Others can be a part of it but should not be the reason for it, as life is a transition and so are people.  Setting boundaries help avoid unnecessary altercations and the resultant anger. Though initially, it may seem artificial, one soon gets accustomed to this way of life.  Love and mutual respect become possible with minimal stress.

Maintaining boundaries leads to better and long lasting relationships. It’s like, you don’t step on my toes and I'll let you dance with me for long. This asks for patience and with trial and error, you too can master this wonderful art.
