Boundaries encircle us. They protect us. They mark our unique and invaluable identity. They tell us where we must prohibit the meddling– or worse– of another.
The choice to prohibit another’s violation of boundaries is essential. Such prohibition may feel like aggression. Nothing could be further from fact.
The choice to defend a boundary is, “positive..functional, and productive for all concerned”.
Defense of boundaries is an essential calculation of choice what to do with our emotions.
