22-26 Boundary

“Daring to set boundaries
is about having the courage
to love ourselves,
even when we risk
disappointing others.”

— Brene Brown

“When you say ‘yes’ to others,
make sure you’re not saying
‘no’ to yourself.”

— Paul Coelho

“Love yourself enough
to set boundaries.
Your time and energy are precious
and you get to decide how you use them.
You teach people how to treat you
by deciding what you will
and won’t accept.”

— Anna Taylor

This week’s MotW encourages us to love ourselves enough to set boundaries. We can start by noticing when we seem to always be giving to the point of our personal detriment, especially to our health and well being. It’s because we care so much about helping people, we adopted a false belief that we have to sacrifice ourselves in the process.

The reality is, we can be of much better service to others when we take care of ourselves as well as others, which allows us to be fully present. So with this mandala we are being given permission to honor ourselves, that we are worth it, and that we will be that much more effective with helping others when we come from a place of self-care.
