How do YOU keep your boundaries strong, yet flexible?
Once upon a time ... little girls were taught that we must always put other people ahead of ourselves. And when we turn into big girls, most of us continue to squash our needs, our desires, our happiness, our energy, our uniqueness, under the swell of tending to everyone else's needs.
But thankfully, we're seeing an uprising: reclaiming our sense of self-care and self-nurture, valuing our beautiful selves and learning to tighten up those boundaries a notch or two.
So I'd really love to know, dear heart ... how do YOU keep your boundaries strong, yet flexible? And how easy do you find it to put your own care and needs first, when everyone else is clamouring for attention?
Maybe you find it impossible! If that's the case, what kind of things would you find helpful?
