I protect myself with boundaries. Those that don’t like it are the ones that need the boundaries or they would over take my life. My boundaries with those that respect them it doesn’t bother. Boundaries are healthy and we should use them. For those that have been abused for periods of time struggle making the boundaries. It is the first thing people take away from those that they want to control and mold into something that works for them — not you. I found the use of affirmations a great help at building boundaries and keeping them in place. This week’s affirmation is as follows:
I am done being used and others taking advantage of me.
I create loving boundaries to protect myself.
About Weekly Affirmations
Each week I find it helpful to use affirmations. I personally find using the same affirmation for 7 days more effective, so I will share them each Thursday with you.
You may ask why Thursday, well it usually is the day of the week that I struggle the most. I found Sunday’s as a start not working for me, I tried then Monday and discovered that I would be stressed from work.
The discovery that the affirmation sits in my mind over the weekend that by Monday was a game changer. It became part of me effortlessly. You can use them as you see best fit. There is no right or wrong with affirmations as long as you use them. Using the affirmations in your daily life helps you build the life that you desire.
