This term refers to differentiating of personal spaces within interpersonal relationships.
A boundary separates the concept of “self” and “others”. A person with healthy boundaries does not allow others to encroach on the deeper levels of their identity.
Likewise a person with healthy boundaries will not be codependent – pinning their happiness on those of others. It is often referred to within the context of laying out what behaviour is acceptable – to set down a boundary is to place a bottom line on what behaviour from others you will tolerate.
A relationship characterized by fuzzy or unhealthy boundaries may be referred to as enmeshed or codependent. Co-dependency is on issue that is addressed during the family programme at a quality addiction treatment centre.
