Permission to Take a Break

Permission to Take a Break

She gave herself permission to take a break from people, places and things that did not support her emotional well-being, and the grace of that decision was simply beautiful. ~ Queenisms™

We may not be able to totally break free when they are, for example, family, but we can set a very strong boundary by publicly stating, “I will treat you with respect, love and support and I expect you to do the same with me.” They will be stunned at first, but if you stick to your guns, they may come around. If they don’t, at each infraction, you can say “I’m going to remove myself for now while you think about a different way to speak to me. When I come back, let’s try that again.” We know this will be hard but think about the wonderful role model you’ll be to other family members who are probably experiencing the same thing but don’t have the courage to speak up. If all is said in love and confidence that you are worthy of respect, it can work.

Have you successfully set boundaries? Let’s share our stories and share our strength.
