The phrase “choose your battles wisely” means to be selective of how we spend our time and who we spend our time with. To be selective. To not join every argument or confrontation. To learn to walk away from unproductive battles.
Ask your partner for acceptance, not obedience.
Do you want real intimacy? Real fulfillment? Or do you want an emotionally charged relationship that swings up and down, over and over?
A boundary is not a plea, demand, or rule that your partner must follow... or else. A boundary is a decision that you make about how you’re going to lead your own life.
