As someone who struggles a lot with anxiety, having a codified, written and mutually consenting agreement really helps a lot of knowing what is acceptable and appreciated in a dynamic.

It’s reaffirming to have these discussions over even minor and sometimes assumed conflicts and opens the door to communication that might otherwise be closed.

While not for everyone, protocols and contracts can help those who struggle with similar experiences to find peace in what could normally be a difficult to navigate dynamic.
