When you violate your own boundaries to keep peace outside, you start a war inside.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you “needed” to save someone by hurting yourself?
Does “sacrifice” to you always take the shape of win-lose situation?
Do you catch yourself saying Yes when you should say No?
Do you feel guilty to turn down something or someone?
Do you work on maintaining external peace even when that creates internal wars?
If your answer is yes to any of the above, It’s time to ponder upon re-establishing your boundaries and re-creating healthy space between yourself and the world.
Stop falling a victim to compassion that leaves you drained.
Empathy without boundaries is Self-destruction.
