If your relationship isn’t as satisfying as you’d like it to be, you might need to set bigger personal limits.
Setting personal limits is vital to creating a close, satisfying relationship.
When we don’t know how to set and stand up for our personal limits, relationships are difficult and unsatisfying because they don’t meet our needs for happiness. When we have a strong sense of our personal limits, it prevents us from being hurt by others.
When you set and enforce personal limits it raises your sense of self-confidence, because you’re sending yourself and your partner a strong message that you are valuable and worthy of the utmost respect. This makes your partner feel safe because he or she knows what you want and don’t want, instead of tiptoeing on eggshells.
Expressing our limits is allows your partner to know you in the truest sense. When the one we love knows us intimately we feel more closely connected.
