Setting Boundaries: Quotes & Books for Healthy Relationships

In this article:

Rather than being a “hot topic,” setting boundaries is more of a “boomerang topic” in that we keep coming back to it. This is partly because boundary setting is crucial to healthy relationships, and relationships are an integral part of our lives (Jones, 2019).
Whether we’re talking about work, marriage, parenting, social engagement, hobbies and sports, or any other part of life, relationships are right there, front and center. The quality of the boundaries we set within those relationships determines the quality of those relationships and, ultimately, the quality of our lives (Katherine, 2000).
Yet setting boundaries does have its nuances, and to help you in the process, we list some of the best setting boundaries books available and share meaningful healthy boundaries quotes that inspire healthy relationships.
