Boundaries are like fences in that they keep bad things out and good things in.
This means that you protect yourself from things or people that might hurt you and you nurture things or people that help you.
When you have someone in your life that is an addict, boundaries are imperative!!
Boundaries are limits or barriers that protect you, your time and your energy.
They keep other's actions and behaviours from hurting, distracting, annoying, or imposing on you.
When your boundaries are well-defined, they help to prevent conflict within your relationships.
They are like your personal rules or policies.
Codependency and boundaries go hand in hand.
When you say no, you have to mean no.
