The holidays are in full effect. Are you feeling festive?
Sometimes this time of year calls for putting up more than twinkly lights and Christmas trees. Sometimes it calls for the B word…
We are talking boundaries.
We don’t know about you, but boundaries are not something we were taught to set and protect. Because of that, we have had to do a lot of hard work around our own layers of codependence.
The truth we learned is this: your energy is a gift that you give to people — it is yours. You have a right to bestow it or withhold it.
No one is entitled to take your time, resources or energy without your express permission.
And here’s the kicker…
Other people’s moods are not your responsibility. Your responsibility is to stay in your heart and tell the truth.
We made a video about this for you. We think it will come in handy for when you need a reminder to communicate what YOU need.
How do you normally approach boundary setting? Are you a natural? Is it hard for you? We would love to hear about how this lands for you. Drop me a line in the Ziva Community.
