Boundaries – Day 4
October 11, 2018
The boundary question isn’t “Can I keep doing this?” It’s “Do I want to?”
Inventory Focus: Some have a high tolerance for pain. It takes a lot before you recognize that a situation hurts. How has it worked out for you when you’ve neglected yourself or overcared about someone else? Are you open to discovering and saying what’s right for you wherever you are? Just because something was right for us yesterday doesn’t mean it works today.
