Boundaries are invisible markers that indicate where one person's existence ends and another's begins. Physical, spiritual, intellectual, and emotional boundaries serve to keep us happy, healthy, and from being harmed.

Boundaries are worthless unless a person reinforces them after setting them up. When you put limits on a relationship, how do you protect those? Perhaps you let individuals walk right through, or maybe you wall yourself off totally from that individual. Read about healthy boundary reinforcement here.
