Boundaries...everyone needs them!

Oh how I wish I would have learned this lesson when I was much younger. I have struggled with setting Boundaries my whole life. I have tried to teach it to my children for their safety, and for their well being. But I am afraid much of it, they had to learn as they watch me suffer from not setting boundaries at times. I think the best few lines that she talked about were this...
"Empathy w/out boundaries is not empathy...compassion w/out boundaries is not genuine, vulnerablitiy w/out boundaries is not vulnerability. Boundaries are RESPECT."
We need to be able to say " Here is whats okay with me and here is whats not!"
I hope you take a minute to watch her short youtube clip...
Watch it HERE:
Choosing authenticity is not an easy choice.  E. E. Cummings wrote, "To be nobody-but-yourself in a world which is doing its best, night and day, to make you everybody but yourself-- means to fight the hardest battle which any human being can fight- and never stop fighting." "Staying real" is one of the most courageous battles that we'll ever fight.:

Sorry you haven't heard much from me. Lee was home for a week and Jeff has been sick. Trying to get my ONLINE LynnMade Business up and running very soon...so lots to do!
But I will survive this...right?
Night dear friends!
