Know yourself to know your limits

One of the very important reasons one should do their personal work before getting into relationships is so they can know what their healthy boundaries are. Those are boundaries that aren’t linked to pain or trauma. After working through pain and trauma, you can identify which boundaries for you are healthy and fair. From there, you can identify the right partner for you, and you can stop questioning if your needs are “okay.” You’ve done your work. You know they’re okay. Howard says when you’ve focused on self-care, you can get to a point of saying to a partner, “This is who I am. If you have a problem with that…this might not be the relationship for me.”
