You can have hope that they will heal… and set your boundary.
You can have hope that they will recover… and maintain your boundary.
You can have hope that they will evolve, learn and prosper while setting up a limit within that relationship that allows you time or space to do the same.
Hope isn’t passive; it does not sit by and wish for things to change. It is responsibility taking, claiming ownership over what is yours (and setting down what isn’t) and believing in a brighter future even when you can’t see or feel one right now.
Sending you love today and a gentle reminder, that boundary work is hope at work. You can have hope and also hold the line.
