Sometimes you just have to draw a line in the sand and say enough is enough as a matter of Self Care.
I tend to be a fairly tolerant person, giving others space to be who they are and allowing their self expression until it gets to a point where I feel ok I have had enough of hearing the negativity or victim or what ever disempowering way might be being expressed.
I do this myself, I have negative thoughts and I allow my mind to tell scary stories which I buy into also so I call it out on myself when I become aware of it so I am not looking to make anyone wrong.
I have a couple of people in my life who choose ( though they may argue they are choosing) to play the victim, to hand their responsibility over to others and I offer positive reminders as well as giving space however there are times that I feel I must draw a line in the sand and take back my space, my energy and create some new boundaries for my own well being.
I place a high priority on my own personal growth and development and I am blessed to surround myself with like minded folk who do the same, who take responsibility for the energy they bring and I am extremely grateful for all of them. I am taking about the couple of people who choose to function a different way.
If you are experiencing some negative Nancie’s or Neil’s or who ever in your life, maybe its time to draw a line in the sand for yourself.
It doesn’t have to be confrontational – its more a decision we make to take care of ourselves and our energy and stop allowing others to pollute our space.
We don’t have control over others however we can control how much we allow them to affect our space.
I have created some boundaries by, limiting how often I do things for this person, how often I answer the phone when they call or how often I spend time dealing with their stuff. If its someone you have a commitment to supporting, as is the case with this person for me – setting boundaries that support you is a great way forward.
If its someone you can have a respectful, clear and kind conversation with, then do so. Sometimes we all need a reminder of who we are being and if we don’t do it for ourselves a loved one may do it for us.
At this time of year we may spend time with people that can be a little tricky – don’t start world war 3 – find your way to minimise the impact on you – meditate often and get yourself in the best vibrational space you can and have a plan to move away from the energy when it gets too much.
Its important, especially for sensitive people to take good care of your environment and your space. Its called self care – drawing a line in the sand is a form of self care.
