Prompt 34, Boundaries


I am reading the language of Letting Go by Melody Beattie. She writes, ” Boundaries emerge from deep within. They are connected to letting go of guilt and shame, and to changing our beliefs about what we deserve. As our thinking about this becomes clearer, so will our boundaries. Boundaries are also connected to a Higher Timing than our own. We’ll set a limit when we’re ready, and not a moment before. There is something magical about reaching that point of becoming ready to set a limit. We know we mean what we say; others take us seriously too. Things change,not because we’re controlling others, but because we’ve changed.”

She closes this section with a positive affirmation that reads,”Today, I will trust that I will learn, grow, and set limits I need in my life at my own pace. This timing need only be right for me.”

For this prompt respond by thinking about boundaries you may need to set, boundaries you have already set, or your feelings about the need to set boundaries.

Please respond through art journaling, digital media, photographs, drawings, poems and or writing.
