Setting Limits

setting limitsThey say “knowing is half the battle”, and it’s true! Knowing and setting your limits is half the battle. When you’re in a situation where things are heating up it’s easier to stop yourself and your partner when you know there are lines you are not willing to cross. Ask yourself this question, “Would I feel comfortable doing or saying this with my family (or my boy/girlfriend’s family) in the room?” It’s natural that you want to feel close. Bonds can be much stronger with time spent together, making memories, laughing and enjoying each other’s company. Without the added stress of being sexually active you are more likely to enjoy your time together. Realizing that once you cross certain lines it’s harder to go back and decide later that you’re uncomfortable. Often times it causes frustration with your partner when you’re unclear about your boundaries.
