Boundaries show they care
Tawwab reminds us of one important truth: if someone didn’t want you in their life anymore, then they’d just sever ties. Creating boundaries is for relationships that are meant to last, so it’s a good thing if someone sets one.
“Reassure yourself that the relationship is okay because they’re setting the boundary. People don’t typically set boundaries in relationships they don’t want to have anymore,” she says. “We have boundaries in relationships we care about. If they didn’t want a relationship with you, they’d leave the relationship. This isn’t the sign of an ending. It’s the sign of someone creating a healthier space.”
