We get to design our own relationships when we practice consensual non-monogamy, but knowing and communicating personal boundaries is an essential step in building agreements that are healthy for everyone involved.
In this video, Kitty Chambliss gives us a glimpse into her Living Without Boundaries courses by sharing some helpful distinctions between these key terms. By understanding our needs and those of our partner(s), we can create more fulfilling agreements together. Defining the structures that comprise healthy relationships will help mitigate conflict, making them integral to any dynamic — regardless of how long or how many people are involved.
Whether you're just beginning to build a new relationship or you've been together for years, understanding the differences between rules, boundaries, and agreements is essential. Kitty is here to help in the video above.
