Setting Healthy Boundaries


I have a person close to me that frustrates me at times and I wonder if I’m being taken advantaged of.

Sometimes it’s difficult to understand if the request are just easier for the individual or if

We all need boundaries to avoid a bumpy road

I’m being taken advantage of.

In all relationships, it is important to set healthy boundaries.

This includes:

  • Knowing what I am/am not willing to do
  • Respecting myself
  • Acknowledging the warning signs
  • Being in charge of my choices
  • Not allowing others to put me down or hurt me
  • Not being embarrassed or shamed
  • Acknowledging my feelings {as well as the other person’s}
  • Know my limits
  • Be honest
  • Take care of myself
  • Realize I can’t do it all
  • Don’t over commit or be made to feel guilty
  • Be firm

Even Jesus set boundaries with his disciples and followers.

Luke 16:13 says, “No servant can serve two masters.  Either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other.”

If I had done this in other friendships and relationships, the end may have been much different.
