Good Fences Make Good Neighbors (a story about boundaries)

When you build a fence between your property and your neighbor’s, it is usually a good thing. Both you and your neighbor understand where your property begins and ends, and this allows you freedom within the fence line. However, when we think about boundaries, we often view them as restrictive. As human beings, we tend to challenge boundaries and fight for freedom. When it comes to your health, boundaries can definitely be a good thing, sometimes making the difference between life and death. Strive to set good, healthy boundaries around what you eat, when you go to bed, and when you exercise, etc. Soon, you will discover that you can indeed flourish within these boundaries and that good fences truly do make good neighbors!
