Sunday Poser #70

Sadje is our host for Sunday Poser.

What makes me feel strong these days is what annoys others in my circle. I feel strong now that I am setting my boundaries. If I am asked to do something that feels wrong for any reason, I do my best to say, “No, I can’t do that.” Some people are very unhappy with my new strength. Some are used to manipulating me, to get what they want. It’s not easy standing up for what is right for me. Typically, I try to offer an alternative to what they ask of me. 

I no longer feel the need to please others to my detriment. I am stronger than I have ever been at any time of my life. I’m still working on it, but  good boundaries make me feel strong.

May be an image of text that says "BOUNDARIES sound Like IUNDERSTAND YOU'RE UPSET, AND T'M NOT OKAY WITH BEING SPOKEN το THAT HAY. ICAN HELP, BUTI CANNOT DO THIS FOR YOU. INEED YOUTO το UNDERSTAND WHAT™ IM FEELING. IDO NOT NEED HELP PROBLEM- SOLVING RIGHT NOW. YOUHAVE THE RIGHT το THINK THAT, AND DO NOT SEE THE SITUATION THAT WAY. IAMNOT RESPONSIBLE FOR YOUR EMOTIONS. IUNDERSTANDIM IMPORTANT το YOU, AND WHILE CARE ABOUT YOU, ALSO NEED SOME SPACE. IAM DONE TALKING ABOUT THIS. RIGHT NOW, INEED SOME TIME το MYSELF IWOULD LOVE το HEAR MORE ABOUT THIS TOMORROH. NO."
