How often have you seen a relationship become bound in unspoken obligations? How do these obligations come about and why do we do nothing with them? Because we do not talk about it when it arises.
It is something that can indicate that a innocent relationship is becoming too much emotionally. Talk to the person with at lest one set of authorities or parents so that you can figure out how to pace the relationship with the wisdom of those closer to God.
What type of boundaries might they consider?
- Limit face-to-face time.
- Limit verbal communication.
- Limit non-verbal communication.
- Sit with family in church.
- Stay “group friendly.”
- Keep communication accountable.
