We all have those people in our lives whom we love, but just ask too much of us. This is just one reason why we need boundaries. Establishing boundaries in relationships can be hard, but it is necessary.
Even Jesus did it when he spent time with just his disciples, or just his apostles; or just Peter, James, and John; or even just his father in heaven.
Fr. Mike explains not just the importance of establishing boundaries, but how we could do so without coming across as glib or too honest. He talks about how establishing boundaries will help us more effectively live the Christian life, and even help the one to whom those boundaries apply.
