Are you a doormat? Do you lead your own, independent life? Are you in charge? Or, on the other hand, does your wife or girlfriend tell you exactly what to do?
If you’re giving her the reins to your existence, I’ve got news for you. You need to learn how to set healthy boundaries in a relationship.
In a romantic relationship devoid of these boundaries, you end up bending over backward to please your partner which might lead to problems and you being unhappy in your relationship after a certain point.
Stop being a ‘yes’ man.
There’s a common misconception here. You think that if you set a boundary with your partner, you’re blocking them out. Incorrect. If you want to have a healthy, high-quality relationship with her, you need to let her know where your boundaries lie.
It’s not about keeping her out or even keeping her at arm’s length. It’s about not self-betraying in order to please her.
If she’s the woman that you think she is, she will respect you and the boundaries you draw up. She will give you that level of respect.
I’ve worked with many men that have found themselves in relationships where the boundaries have gone out of the window. Since they failed to set these boundaries from the offset, their partner has walked all over them.
They’ve found themselves becoming stressed, angry, upset… and not been able to pinpoint the cause of their problems.
The reason is obvious to everyone but them: there are no boundaries in place. That’s why I wanted to share a guide on how to set healthy boundaries in your relationships.
Tending to this part of your love life doesn’t have to be a chore. Taking the time to do this can help you gain the respect, love, and trust that you deserve from a partner.
Within this guide, I will dispel some of the myths surrounding setting boundaries and why you should do it.
