By the end of 2020 my boundaries SUCKED and I was spiraling.
It had been too long since I’d gone over them to see if I needed to make changes or set some that had never been set. How many aspects of our lives are firsts in this last year we’ve had?
The wonderful thing is I recognized it and I made changes. Taking back my happy and making choices on how I am going to live my life. Reminding myself how others will act/talk/be around me. I know that sounds omminous, but it really isn’t. I didn’t cut anyone out of my life nor feel the need to. I took a time out from things until I had my head back on straight though. ME FIRST
I talked about breaking up with social media on Episode #41.
I felt I was no longer allowed to have an opinion. I was feeling small and insignificant. I refuse to feel that way about myself. I matter dammit and I do make change happen in the world.
I have a new boundary that is going to be tough for me to stick because it’s changing a behavior of decades. One that I used to enjoy, but no longer want a part of.
That’s the thing about boundaries. Sometimes you don’t know that they aren’t serving you anymore as you and the other person have grown and change. Then all the sudden there is resent me and you are wondering wth is going on. That’s why it’s important to take a look at things a couple of times a year.
In fact, speaking of boundaries…
listen to the group session replay to recognize if your boundaries suck right now and why you need them to change.
This is free to join and if you hang out live you will have a chance to talk about the feelings as you start realizing how you are letting others treat you.
