Boundaries: Human beings are responders and initiators.Many times we have boundary problems because we lack initiative. Are you willing to risk failing so you can learn and grow. The best boundaries are formed when a child is pushing against the world naturally.and the outside world sets its limits on the child.In this way the aggressive child has learned limits without loosing his or her spirit. Our spiritual and emotional well- being depends on our having this spirit.
When a baby bird is ready to hatch, if you break the egg for the bird, it ill die, The bird must peck its own way out of the egg into the world. his aggressive ‘workout’ strengthens the bird, allowing it to function in the outside world . Robbed of this responsibility, it will die.
Where in your life are you not taking the initiative? If you weren’t so passive what could become available? Also where are you not letting others like your children struggle through adversity so they can grow more resilient and from there grow more confident in their own abilities.?
Boundaries by Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend.(Part of sentences taken from the book)
light not our darkness that most frightens us) Part of a quote from Marianne Williamson
Go for it! I want on my grave stone she burned out instead of rusted out! What do you want them to say about you?
Ask yourself are your actions and speaking in alignment with what you are committed to? Look at what are the habitual patterns that have that commitment thwarted? Are you willing to take responsibility for when it doesn’t go that way you want or the way you expected and clean up your part? Are you willing to let go of Expectations of yourself and others? What are you not being truthful about to yourself and others.
Our thoughts can be like a junk drawer-we need to take inventory and get rid of what is not useful! (wendy b)
