She wanted to be known as a woman who always had a ready smile, but also knew how to set a gentle but firm boundary. It was going to take practice but she was soooooo ready. – Queenisms™
Setting boundaries always seemed so scary and hard. When we finally couldn’t stand living in the resentment anymore we began to practice saying, “No.” At first we did it with a lot of apologizing cause we were worried that people wouldn’t like us anymore. And, some people were a bit miffed that we weren’t saying “Yes” all of the time. In time we stopped apologizing and simply ran a check on our feelings before we gave our answer. It took practice and we’re not perfect but the freedom and protection of being a good boundary setter is so worth it. Are you good at boundaries?
