Boundaries are vital to creating and maintaining healthy, sustainable relationships. Setting boundaries ensures mutual respect and helps to solidify relationships in a loving and supportive way. Be sure to follow through with any consequences for any unacceptable behavior set within those boundaries.
A person with an addiction needs to heal, and so do their loved ones. Setting boundaries stops people from being at the complete will of what other people want or need. Instead, boundaries allow people to live in harmony with their own desires, needs, and feelings. Living with boundaries helps a person in a relationship to avoid other people’s problems.
An individual is in control of their needs with boundaries set in place. They do not have to do something to please another person in the relationship. Boundaries permit a person to be in-tune with themselves and not others. Setting boundaries allows a person to be more aware of their own decisions, experiences, and consequences.
Boundaries are very important for physical, mental, and emotional well-being. When boundaries are set and your loved one comes home from treatment, discuss your expectations and keep communication open. Determine your boundaries and discuss them with your loved one.
Boundaries establish guidelines for appropriate responsibilities and behaviors. When deciding to set boundaries, think about what is and is not acceptable. Boundaries vary among people and every situation is different. Be sure to think of your own needs and expectations and follow through with them. Commit yourself to these boundaries. A loved one will eventually realize they need to respect your boundaries. This will take time and cultivate respect, which will help in the healing process and strengthen the relationship.
