3.2-1 Healthy Boundaries

Students are encouraged to create and protect positive, appropriate relationships with friends, family, significant others, and fellow students. Learn how to say "no" politely but with determination. Be a good steward of your time; fun and fellowship are essential, but the reason you are here is to study and prepare for ministry. Set boundaries for yourself and share them with your friend(s), family, and especially your roommate. Clear communication of boundaries is crucial. Likewise, you should honor the boundaries that have been set by others. Be mindful and respectful of other people’s preferences. Not everyone will find your jokes funny or your comments beneficial; you should make every effort to put the needs of others before yourself.
