Healthy boundaries are a good way to keep your relationship healthy, happy and secure. By talking and setting boundaries together, you can both have a deeper understanding of the type of relationship you both want. Boundaries are not meant to make you feel trapped or like you’re walking on eggshells. Boundaries are not a sign of secrecy or distrust, boundaries are a way of expressing what makes you feel comfortable and what you like or don’t like within the relationship.
Healthy boundaries shouldn’t restrict your ability to:
• Not have to share passwords to your email, social media accounts or phone
• Go out with your friends without your partner
• Participate in the activities and hobbies that you like
• Respect each other’s individual likes and needs
Healthy relationships “Sparkle”
Healthy relationships can need a little “Sparkle” from time to time. You may need a dash of extra sparkle if you feel disconnected from each other or like your relationship has become boring. If your relationship seems a little stale have some fun, do something together that you both enjoy doing, keep using healthy tips throughout your relationship.
If you’re not in a relationship, you may need a little “Sparkle” too. Being single can be the best or worst feeling ever, but remember relationships don’t only include you and your partner.
Think about all the fantastic times you’ve had with your family members and friends.
Arrange a night to go out with the people you love and care about the most and have fun, laugh and make memories while you just enjoy being you! If it helps, talk to someone about your feelings. Sometimes we all just want to offload to someone, whilst they just listen.
