[What did I learn today? Lessons on the Journey to Unconditional Self Love] Bondaries

Daring to set boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves,
even when we risk disappointing others. We can't base our own worthiness on
others' approval (and this is coming from someone who spent years trying to
please everyone!). Only when we believe, deep down, that we are enough can
we say "Enough!" Brene Brown

How do you set boundaries? Do you have boundaries? Do you know what
boundaries are? How can I set boundaries? These are questions that surfaced
in my pool yesterday Why? I believe it did because of my deep desire to keep the peace, people
please, and avoid confrontation. This week working with a team showed me
that I must choose courage over comfort and set some boundaries for myself
- and that involves me knowing without a shadow of a doubt what I want,
what is okay for me and knowing that whatever the outcome of letting people
know this I will be okay Pretty sobering thoughts right there Onwards to setting boundaries.... Peace!
