3) You feel more secure in your relationships because you’re being honest - Deepstash

3) You feel more secure in your relationships because you’re being honest

Another of the key benefits and signs you’re a “boundary setter” who needs personal space is that your relationships experience a surge in honesty and wellbeing. 

Far from being a relationship ender, being honest about needing space is actually a courageous thing to say. 

A secure partner is not going to take this personally and if they know you well they will understand that this isn’t a personal issue or conflict but just the way you are wired. 

Having boundaries in relationships doesn’t mean you are avoidant attachment type or anything difficult, it just means that you may need more space than most and have limits about the amount of physical and emotional intensity you can stomach in one go.
