Quit settling for the crumbs.
Quit blaming others for your inability to set a limit.
Quit pretending that you can do it all, with joy.
Quit hanging on to that old role that keeps you feeling safe and comfy, the role that is also keeping you anxious and resentful.
Quit acting like it’s too late to set a boundary because you’re too tired and too unsure of how to start and it’s just “the way it’s always been.”
Quit running yourself ragged and calling it “empathy” or “love” or some other label that makes you feel better.
It’s not too late.
Boundary work is how you show appreciation for yourself and others. Its how you ensure you’re showing up without bitterness in your heart and disappointment on your sleeve. It’s how you can confidently trust you’re being welcomed into spaces that accept and honor the authentic you, not the one performing/pleasing/perfecting it all. It’s a radical act of love, and a permission slip for those around you to do the same.
