Annoying People With My Boundaries...
...ever done that? I do, and often. Not on purpose, mind you - just gifted.
Having worked on my healing process nearly half my life; I have, at times, come on seemingly TOO strong when establishing my boundaries. I take full ownership of the mistakes I've made, and have tried to learn from every misstep. At times I feel I have spent eons in "damage control", from them.
But, then have moved on, until I have to establish the next boundary. Sometimes, they do "go off without a hitch". Other times, you have to step back and see if your actions are coming from a place of hurt or healing, and act according to your personal integrity.
I used to apologize for EVERY boundary - when you go from basically none, as you place one, it can feel like you're being arrogant. Sometimes, even if your heart is right; it is met with others feeling you ARE being arrogant.
You just have to take the time, look at it, realistically, and go on from there.
Always keep in mind You ARE Worthwhile; and doing what you have to do to protect your heart is vital. Just like armor, bullet-proof vests, and even what catchers and umpires wear behind home plate - they're in place to protect your heart from being injured.
How are you with establishing healthy boundaries? Are you able to, yet?
Have a good day, and be safe... #2022YOU ***beamererin.com*** #JusTSpInnIngPlaTes email@example.com
