For Today- 2.22.16

 

Honor your boundaries in any situation where you feel you are being disregarded. There are times when it’s better to choose the high road, being the bigger person and walking away from it, knowing that nothing that can be accomplished because the person will not change. Learning to recognize this, and saving yourself and your energy is an important part of honoring your self-worth.

However, there are a lot of situations where you shouldn’t have to do this, and your personal boundaries aren’t being respected by the other person. A common example would be when you’ve stated you are uncomfortable with their behavior, and they continue anyway. Or when someone is being narcissistic, putting their own needs or wants above yours, and then making you feel as if you shouldn’t have a problem with it. These are the times where you DO need to speak up. You need to draw the line in the sand, demanding that they respect your needs and you as a person, or be prepared to distance yourself until they do.

You are not serving yourself, and you will remain stuck in the mode of “victim” if you allow others to walk over you. Every time you speak up, honoring your own boundaries, one of two things will happen – they will honor you, or they will leave. If they choose to leave, then they are not able to give you what you need, and you don’t need them in your life. Period.

You want to be surrounded by people that honor you for who you are. They are the ones that encourage, empower, and support you.

Always remember, you have the right to call the shots when it comes to your life and how you want to be treated.

Love you kickass warriors way past the sky.

Blessings to you,
