Plaster this on a sticky note and place it every where you need to (your bathroom mirror, the car dash board, your fridge) because the time will come when you’ll need to be reminded just how WORTHY YOU ARE of expressing your limits.
That unkind voice you hear when you communicate a boundary (or attempt to) is NOT yours… it’s the conditioning that you have inherited— And you’ve carried it thus far without your permission, without your awareness, without your knowing. It’s a myth and a lie and believing it distances you from those you love and more importantly… from yourself. It’s heavy, and it’s okay to set it down.
Learning to love yourself starts with showing up for yourself. This is how you can authentically show up for others, and no sooner. It’s also how we extend permission to our people, and generations after us, to do the same.
What myth on boundaries have you believed for far too long?
