"Strange how long it takes us to discover ourselves."
~ Truman Capote ~
I'm still learning how to set boundaries without guilt. I'm hardwired to please people even at my own expense. I know on an intellectual level that this kind of self-sacrifice is likely ego-driven, definitely filled with martyrdom, and that setting boundaries is healthy and the way to go... but it just doesn't come naturally to me. Still and all, it's needed and I'm working on it.
It's ok to set boundaries.
