What are Healthy Boundaries?

Healthy Boundaries…

  1. Help us feel comfortable and safe.
  2. Involve using “I feel…” and “I will…” statements.
  3. If a boundary is not listened to, the consequences initially stated in your “I will…” statement are followed through on.
  4. Involve flexible and firm boundaries.
  5. Help protect information that you do not want others to know about.

Although practicing healthy boundaries can be a protective factor against sexual violence, please know that if you are sexually assaulted, it is never your fault. Sexual violence is always the responsibility of the perpetrator.
