To keep my standing as a minister current, I must attend a “Healthy Boundaries” training once every three years. Here are four gems I want to remember:
1. Boundaries preserve the sanctity of the self in relationship.
2. Why do people cross boundaries inappropriately? Because people are pleasure seeking creatures. And because we aren’t paying attention.
3. A teacher should never want something from a student.
4. The purpose of another person’s life is never to relieve my suffering.
Do you attend similar trainings? What are the gems you take away?
