Words For The Soul

What does it mean to have boundaries
 Are these walls to forming healthy connections
Or to keep out that which makes us uncomfortable

As children we are taught  to be nice to strangers
To give uncle Joe a hug because he is family
That it is okay to say yes when we want to say no

We lose so much of ourselves people pleasing
Allowing those into our personal space
That do not belong there

If we do not learn how to set boundaries
The lesson will repeat itself many times
Either by people or circumstances

It is perfectly healthy and okay to say no
For when you learn to empower yourself
It is when you are truly free
