40 Days of Forgiveness – Day 35 Setting Healthy Boundaries
“Overexposing my innards to careless hearts and hands is a practice I am prepared to stop performing.”
~ Coco J. Ginger
Boundaries are natural barriers of protection for us.
They protect us from getting hurt and wounded even further than we already are.
Boundaries are good if they are healthy.
And most boundaries are not.
Over time our boundaries become hard and dense, nothing in and nothing out.
Unhealthy boundaries are unyielding and inflexible.
They keep us safe from harm, but also prevent us from feeling love that is coming our way too.
Or we might discover we don’t have any boundaries at all.
Healthy boundaries are transparent, providing a strong layer of protection that keeps negativity at bay while allowing the positive to enter our hearts at our command.
Part of the forgiveness process involves destroying the dense, impenetrable boundaries that keep us from what we want and replacing them with nourishing, healthy boundaries that feed the heart and mind.
When a person builds new boundaries, they clearly establish what is acceptable to enter and what will stay outside of their space.
It’s a beautiful way to take back power in one’s life and be proactive in opening to decisions that will serve them well.
Creating healthy boundaries is an essential exercise in releasing pain and replacing it with a new structure that propels your life forward.
Decide that you are ready for new boundaries and let’s go get em!
