Fences, Boundaries, and Relationships

When I say todays Daily Prompt I remembered this wonderful series on boundaries.  I had to learn what a healthy relationship looked like as I was always the one  getting walked on. I seemed to say yes to everyone and everything.

“Yes, I would love to get that for you…

Yes, of course I want to do that…

Yes, I would love to take you to the store…

Yes, I would love to make that….

Yes, I would love to head that project…”

Meanwhile, in my head I wanted to shoot them!

Not today.  I have no problem saying “no” today.  This series helped me do that.Not a doormat for anyone today!

Daily Prompt: Good Fences?

Who are your neighbors? Are you friends with them, barely say hi, or avoid them altogether? Tell us a story — real or invented — about the people on the other side of your wall (or street, or farm, or… you get the point). Photographers, artists, poets: show us NEXT DOOR.

    I have been blessed by Jehovah Rabbi how to put up Godly boundaries and how to protect them. Many times that makes me unpopular but that is okay as they are just users and abusers anyway.

    God bless you with healthy boundaries and the wisdom, grace and meekness to defend them

    I enjoyed reading this the first time you posted it, and it blessed me again, my friend. I think it’s good to go back to those old teaching periodically, because sadly, we (I) am often too quick to forget the lessons I learned earlier in my walk with Christ. Aren’t you glad that God is patient with us, often repeating the same lessons to us again and again? May God bless you and keep you, my friend!

    Love,
