We won’t experience the relational health and intimacy our hearts crave until we learn how to set and maintain healthy boundaries. We’re afraid, if we set boundaries, we’ll hurt those we love, will damage a relationship irreparably, or will cause the other person to retaliate. In this episode, author and counselor Tanya Glazman shares her insights regarding a number of fears many of us face along with tools that can help us move forward in freedom and increased relational health.
