Good Fences Make Good Neighbors

Good fences make good neighbors. So goes the common adage. Don’t we all know that? While we may appreciate our neighbors, we also respect the fact that what belongs to our neighbors, as well as what belongs to us, must be protected. So it is with our emotional lives. We must value our emotional life and protect it. This is not a one-time process, but rather boundaries must be managed on an ongoing basis. How are you doing at setting and managing your boundaries?
