Healthy Boundaries

Always in my life I’ve always had issues with setting healthy boundaries with any type of relationship rather it be friendships or an intimate one. But as I begin to get older the more I understood that I needed to put my foot down and let it be known that I deserve respect and you must respect my boundaries. Honestly I’m a easy going person and I honestly feel every single emotion that is given. I’m an empath and it sucks.

It’s draining and I really wish people would understand that. It’s not that I’m trying to be a bitch or anything I just want people to fully understand that I have to be the best me for my son. I can’t raise him to be the best him if I’m always depressed and tired from having causal conversations. I get it people go through things just like I do but at the same time be mindful of others who are dealing with anxiety and depression.

I love and care about all of my friends. They mean the world to me. Common courtesy goes a long way. When I vent and I decide to vent to a friend, I don’t just dump it all on them without speaking and checking on their well-being because if they’re having a bad day I just won’t vent I’ll make sure whatever issues they are having don’t need to be spoken about. I get it. Feeling like you have nobody to talk to. That’s where writing comes into play. When I feel like I have nobody I either talk to my significant other or I’ll just write about it and release it to the moon and pray about it until I see I have a listening ear to get a different perspective.

I’m done apologizing for setting boundaries for my peace of mind. If you don’t like it you can easily remove yourself from my life. No love lost and no hard feelings. I know what I want and it’s peace of mind on a daily basis. Like I said before I have to be the best me and I won’t allow anybody get in the way of that. Period point blank.

  1. I love this. I am going through something similar right now. Boundaries for others as well as ones for myself. Very important to protect yourself mentally & emotionally & boundaries help make this possible.

    It’s not cruel, you’re not a bitch, & boundaries are completely normal in healthy relationships. In my experience, boundaries aren’t made as an act of hate but rather a compromise needed to retain peace ✌🏼… of others get upset or are offended by your boundaries, then clearly they were needed 💁🏼‍♀️ stay strong, momma!
