When I take care of myself and you take care of yourself, we can have a relationship on eye-level. That way we can flourish together.

A boundary is the invisible line where I end, and you begin.

On my side are my responsibilities. These are my actions, thoughts and feelings. On the other side of the line are your responsibilities i.e., your actions, thoughts and feelings.

If you overstep the line or pull me over it, I will tell you.

If you do so repeatedly, I will protect my boundaries more.

Should I overstep your boundaries, I expect you to let me know.

Setting and protecting boundaries, is not comfortable, but necessary so that two people can flourish independently and within the relationship at the same time.
