Learning to be with people that give me the same energy and feeling.
I am realizing everyday that my needs are important too, and if I do not set clear and consistent boundaries then my feelings will continually get hurt and people will never know how to treat me. I am realizing that it is important to stand my ground and speak up because if you don’t then people will take advantage of my kind soul and walk all over me.
You may have not be as strong in the past, but you are stronger today. In the past people may have abused your kind soul, but use that as a learning experience to know what is acceptable and what is not. We live and learn. Without life and its experiences then we wouldn’t grow. Do not be mad at the things that you have been through because it built your muscles. Praise God for growth, understanding and self awareness.
