Relationships – the most rewarding, and most difficult aspect of life.
I believe relationships are meant to be enriching and life-giving. Life-giving relationships come from healthy boundaries and open communication. If a relationship is violating healthy boundaries, is co-dependent, or abusive it can be toxic & stifling.
Are your relationships enriching or stifling? Do you have open communication in your relationships?
For some great resources on boundaries and healthy relationships check out the books by Cloud & Townsend. I personally like Boundaries and Changes that Heal.
