Ladies, it’s time for us to set some boundaries!
Boundaries allow us to accept into our lives what we deserve, whilst declining offerings of negativity. From the littlest boundary, to the biggest, it is important that we set as many boundaries as required to ensure that we are surrounded by love and light at all times. Are you the kind of person that never sets boundaries? Do you struggle to turn people down? Do you want to set boundaries but have no idea where to start? Well, there’s no need to worry about that anymore, as we have found some amazing tips for you.
Below is a video of Kenya Raymer, known as Halfie Truths, talking about setting and respecting boundaries. She is spreading a vital message to those that say ‘yes’, when they really want to say ‘no’, because they’re afraid of hurting the feelings of another person. Not only is it okay for people to set boundaries, and be willing to say ‘no’, but it is actually very important to do so. For the benefit of your mental and emotional well-being. And in this video, Kenya is letting us know just how important setting and respecting boundaries is.
Kenya reminds us of the value of our time, whilst teaching us how to put ourselves before others. After all, we can’t expect anybody else to care for us if we are not first taking care of ourselves. One of the great examples that she uses is when referring to an oxygen mask on an aeroplane. We must put our masks on first, before helping the person next to us put theirs on; even if next to us is a child, or an elderly person. That scenario is reflected in day-to-day society. We can’t help somebody else unless we have first helped our self. But many of us try to do that. And that can be emotionally draining, to say the least.
If you don’t feel like talking today, don’t talk. We must learn to never feel pressured into forgetting our boundaries because others expect us to be readily available at their beck and call. We are allowed to say ‘no’. We are allowed to say ‘not today’. We are allowed to decline an apology, and refuse to give people another chance to hurt us. In other words, we are allowed to set boundaries . And others must respect those boundaries. Especially those that want to be in our lives. A There is nothing wrong with protect your peace.
