The purpose of healthy boundaries is to facilitate healthy relationships, not to shut relationships down. Healthy boundaries are not about keeping other people out, they’re about letting other people safely in. If other people are behaving in ways that are safe for us, we can choose to let them in. If they are behaving in ways that are not safe for us, we can choose to keep them out. Their behavior belongs to them; our choice belongs to us.
Task for Today
Let other people behave as they wish. Accept that they are not yours to control.
