Friends are good for your relationship

Having and nurturing friendships, even when in a romantic relationship, is important for many reasons, including preventing codependent romantic relationships. But friendships can also be good for your relationships because research has found that friendships help couples get through relationship troubles easier than those who don’t nurture their friendships. So when you take time away from your partner to be with friends, you really are doing it for your partner, as well as for yourself.

You respect boundaries, don’t you?

We like this quote from Madison’s Instagram page because it seems to pertain to how we interact with boundaries. So often, you may worry that, if you set a boundary with somebody, they will lash out at you, or love/respect you less. But, keep in mind, don’t others enforce boundaries with you? And, don’t you (hopefully) respect those? If you extend grace at those times, you deserve to expect the same in return, when it’s you putting up the boundary.
