Conditional love is saying: ‘I will only love you if/when you do this or don’t do that.’
Boundaries in relationship say: ‘I love you no matter what you do, and yet I won’t choose to be with you when your behaviour is unkind.
Healthy boundaries are indispensable when it comes to respect, healthy relationships and thorough care for each other.
Sometimes we fear that if we set a boundary, the other will reject us.
However consider.. if you’re not expressing your boundaries, you’re also not giving others the opportunity to love you the way you need.
