Communication of love and decision making power in dating relationships

If you’re single (and especially if you’re a single parent), don’t worry if you need a boost too!

By setting boundaries together, you can both have a deeper understanding of the type of relationship that you and your partner want.

Boundaries are not meant to make you feel trapped or like you’re “walking on eggshells.” Creating boundaries is not a sign of secrecy or distrust — it’s an expression of what makes you feel comfortable and what you would like or not like to happen within the relationship.

Whatever the case, your relationship no longer feels safe. To some degree you lost yourself in your relationship while falling in love and have become dependent on your partner.

This is not actually a “bad” thing and is a necessary part of the bonding process that happens when we fall in love.

You felt alive and wanted to share every waking moment with your lover, right? And then, a terrible thing happens to two people in love.

Somewhere between 2 months and 2 years into your relationship, the intoxicating feelings of relationships face, called the Power Struggle stage.

Remember, healthy boundaries shouldn’t restrict your ability to: Even healthy relationships can use a boost now and then.
