“Let Come What Comes. Let Go What Goes. See What Remains.”
I had a chat with my son this morning about him constantly puking, pooping, or peeing on my white sheets. I jokingly said “Time to set some boundaries, Ralph” in which a response was given with his signature side eye. Returning his side eye, I started to think more on the subject. With that being said-
Let’s Blog Over Setting Boundaries…
Boundaries are essential to me, and since having IV they’re as essential as ever. They define – for me – what stays in, and just as important – what stays out.
Setting boundaries is necessary to achieving inner peace and maintaining a healthy balance in all areas of your life. Your relationships with others are almost always a direct reflection of your relationship with yourself.
I personally had a relationship in my life that I realized had only degraded me, had taken from me, and I’d found myself consistently feeling down. I realized I had to take a stand on that. I don’t have to accept any of that in my life no matter who it stems from. There are healthy boundaries that you’re able to have with anyone whether it be friends, children, family, in your marriage, and even yourself.
As Christians we are told to – uhh let me rephrase that – we are expected to abide with everyone in love. However, let us not forget the Bible also instructs for us to tell the TRUTH in LOVE. If there is someone in your life consistently crossing boundaries – sit down and have that conversation. Be clear, and direct. Be stern, speak calmly, firmly, but be loving. If they can’t get in line, don’t be afraid to walk away.
Let go of attachments and beliefs and people who don’t reflect what you know God wants you to believe about yourself. You know who they are.
Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm. Proverbs 13:20
Let Come What Comes. Let Go What Goes. See What Remains.
