Having a spiritual director is a good way to focus and grow as an individual. They can help you to resolve issues in your life, give you guidance, and to pray together. Talking with somebody about things that are on your mind is always a good way to feel better.
I read a post recently that asked the question, “Can I be friends with my spiritual director?”, and I thought that was an interesting thought. Surely you will be close with your spiritual director because they offer you guidance and meet with you often. However, there are boundaries to the relationship and this post outlines them properly.
