Every relationship needs boundaries. When we say every relationship, it includes all your relationships whether it’s with your friends or your hook up or your partner. You need to set some healthy boundaries for your own mental health and well-being. You always expect the other person to know the boundaries and that’s why you fail to communicate these healthy boundaries with the other person. Especially when it comes to a romantic relationship, we feel that boundaries will limit our relationship and won’t let us or our relationship grow. But the fact is that when a relationship does not have healthy boundaries it tends to grow into an unhealthy relationship, which is why boundaries are important. It’s essential to set boundaries and communicate them with the other person because you do not want to sit on it. Moreover, healthy boundaries help your relationship grow stronger and healthy. Here are some ways you can set healthy boundaries.

1. The first step to setting healthy boundaries is knowing your own self. You need to know what are your pet peeves and what you like and dislike. You need to be aware of what makes you uncomfortable and what doesn’t.

2. It’s also vital for you to know when the boundaries are crossed. You need to be able to tell when your partner has done something to make you upset or uncomfortable.

3. The second thing that you need to do is to communicate these boundaries with the other person. Your partner is no mind reader. You will need to tell them about these boundaries.

4. Remember that you’re not wrong in setting boundaries so, don’t let your partner guilt trip you about it.

5. Don’t twist your words. Be very straight and clear with your partner. Don’t be diplomatic. Be very clear about your boundaries.

6. Make sure that they know that you’re setting these boundaries for your own sanity but that does not mean that you love them any less.

7. Make sure that your partner knows that there will be consequences if they cross the boundaries and follow through with it. Don’t let them get away with overstepping the boundaries.

8. Don’t forget to set emotional boundaries as well as physical boundaries. There’s nothing wrong in being self-aware and indulging in self-love.
