Description

What are boundaries, and why is it so hard to put them in place? According to Brene Brown, a boundary is simply something that tells us “what is okay, and what is not okay.” We often struggle with setting boundaries because we fear how others will respond. As a result, our boundaries can become too rigid or too flexible, which can lead to problems accepting help or protecting our time and resources. Rather than being walls that shut out the external world, healthy boundaries work like a gate: they can open up to receive things that are good, and close to things that are bad. Healthy boundaries help us to be our true selves: when we can say “yes” and “no” without fear, guilt, or obligation, we are free to connect authentically with others.

In this group, participants will share and process areas of their life where they struggle to set effective boundaries. The group will focus on:

  • Understanding God’s purpose and design for boundaries
  • Taking ownership of our emotions, desires, and behavior
  • Responding when others infringe upon our boundaries
  • Learning to accept limitations set by others
  • Discovering how our stories fit into the greater narrative of the gospel
