"I will release all the confined forces of my soul and apply them directly to that which I may be."
~ Muriel Strode ~
It's fun to feel a little badass every so often- to know that we will not be manipulated, or baited. Others know when we are feeling it and give us a bit of distance and respect.
There's time for generous compassion and loving goodness and thinking of others and doing for others, but let's not forget, there is also a time to say, "No!" and to firmly stand our ground.
I set and protect personal boundaries.
