Let’s be honest, everybody is talking about boundaries. From Pastor Sarah Jakes Roberts to your local advice column, boundaries are the new black. That’s a fashion reference for the people who don’t know. With all these conversations on needing boundaries, I rarely see any real conversation about how to create them. Which got me to thinking, how do you create boundaries? Is there a rule book? Do they all have to be long extended justifications of the word no? Is it necessary for them to be one word or can they be full sentences? Are they just for your dating lives and friendships, or can I use them with families too? All of these questions came to my mind as I thought about how to create boundaries.
