One of the keys to having a healthy and successful relationship is setting some boundaries.
FOX’s Ashley Papa explains in this week’s “FOX on Love”:
In our quest for love, we have to negotiate some of our wants to get the lasting relationship we need. But, relationship expert, Mastin Kipp, says there are compromises you should never make.
The first, is keeping your relationship boundaries:
(Kipp) “You can get a meshed and not know what’s yours, mine and ours. And so you have to have boundaries for self care and to take care of yourself. The second thing you should never compromise are your needs. Do you need space? Do you need time to reflect? Do you need to be out with the guys? Do you need time some time to clean, do laundry, whatever it might be, your physical needs are very important.”
Mastin also says, never compromise your body and emotional well-being. It’s important to never stop living your purpose, too:
(Mastin) “People are happy, usually when they meet each other and then they change to adapt to what other people want in the relationship and that’s one reason why relationships sour over time.”
Mastin says maintaining your non-negotiables will only make you the best partner you can be.
