Well-being Pillar!

We are now in the second week of our third well being pillar which focuses on boundaries.

Boundaries!  Why are they so important in building positive relationships.
 
We know….when you think of boundaries you think it’s a rule or a block to stop someone from doing something.  Perhaps you think boundaries are a great way of keeping someone out of your life or getting closer.  We want you to take this concept and turn it on its head.  Boundaries are a great way of creating a very open, honest, and positive relationship.  Please look at the video to find out more 🙂

We all watched this video during our weekly house meeting and had a really enlightening conversation with the girls. They seem to understand the importance of having boundaries and also enforcing said boundaries. We hope you also give it a watch and maybe learn a few things.

Lots of love,
The New Portena Team
