“Setting boundaries is about having the courage to love ourselves even when we risk disappointing others.” – Brene Brown
Let’s try to love ourselves enough today that we don’t fall into the trap of people-pleasing. Of course, that doesn’t mean we have license to disrespect others or intentionally offend anyone. But at the end of the day it is ourselves we need to honestly answer.
If pleasing others wears you down, harms you, or puts you at risk, maybe it’s time to look at the boundaries you have in place. Boundaries protect.
