“Sometimes the forgiveness process fosters deeper unity and connection between people. Sometimes it points to an exit sign.” – Hope For Today
Setting healthy boundaries with clear consequences, sometimes pointing to the exit door, lets others know that unacceptable behavior won’t be tolerated. Sometimes this is scary to do, but I’ve found it’s the only way to love myself, our relationship and respect the person I’m in relationship with. They then have the opportunity to either stop behaving in a way that hurts me, or not be in relationship with me any more. This applies to business, friendship and romance. But if I’m not stepping up in my responsibility to consistently be kind, loving and repespectful, I have no right to ask it of them. So I do the daily deal to be the best me and set healthy boundaries for others. This helps assure that ILML!
