Boundaries: When to Say Yes - When to Say No
Having clear boundaries is essential to a healthy, balanced lifestyle. A boundary is a personal property line that marks those things for which we are responsible. In other words, boundaries define who we are and who we are not.
Boundaries impact all areas of
our lives: Physical boundaries help us determine who may touch us
and under what circumstances -- Mental boundaries give us the
freedom to have our own thoughts and opinions -- Emotional
boundaries help us to deal with our own emotions and disengage from
the harmful, manipulative emotions of others -- Spiritual boundaries
help us to distinguish God's will from our own and give us renewed
awe for our Creator -- Often, Christians focus so much on being
loving and unselfish that they forget their own limits and limitations.When confronted with their lack of boundaries, they
ask: - Can I set limits and still be a loving person? - What are
legitimate boundaries? - What if someone is upset or hurt by my
boundaries? - How do I answer someone who wants my time, love,
energy, or money? - Aren't boundaries selfish? - Why do I feel
guilty or afraid when I consider setting boundaries? Dr. Henry Cloud
and Dr. John Townsend offer biblically-based answers to these and
other tough questions, showing us how to set healthy boundaries with
our parents, spouses, children, friends, co-workers, and even
