Boundaries (continued)

Boundaries aid us in understanding where others end and we begin. They provide us with a sense of control and understanding. People without secure boundaries struggle to say NO to the pressures and demands of others. A fear develops that if they say NO they endanger the relationship, are bad, or will be personally responsible for any and all outcomes from not acquiescing. In realty, resentment builds, slowly at first, almost so slow and small it cannot be noticed. As these resentments continue to build deep in the mind, like an unseen cancer spreading, they take down the healthy and positive relationships in its path. What are you resentful of? How can you implement one small boundary today? What boundaries have you successfully instituted in your life?
