Loyalty to family runs so deep.
So much so, that we are conditioned to overlook and justify and even defend the choices and actions made by those closest to us— even if they are not in alignment with our values or morals. This causes much suffering within our body, our thoughts, and of course our relationships. All for the sake of “blood.” This is passed down through generations, until someone (like you) decides enough is enough.
Boundary work is the only way to ensure you don’t lose yourself, your peace, or your confidence. It guards your new family system and honors the legacy you are choosing to leave. It fends off sin and promotes true, everlasting, steadfast love— because love isn’t pretending, after all. This you know, and this you are now choosing to pursue, even if it’s scary and uncomfortable.
I’d love to hear about your experiences with boundaries + family members. This language and practice is new to so many of you, and we have to be reminded often that we aren’t alone in the journey. Your words may bring hope + light to someone today 👇🏼 #cjbboundaries
