1.From Vrunda Chauk: “Boundaries“:
Not everyone is worth your time and energy. You need to be selective. That’s for yourself and your well being. To protect your energy.
Think of it like this…
There is a door on the ground. It’s a door to your heart.
It is open. Everyone gets to come in and enjoy the warm sunshine inside.
But suddenly it starts getting crowded. So many people wanting to go in and enjoy the sunshine.
Even you don’t feel comfortable being with so many people. They all have different choices, opinions and they drain you. You feel exhausted.
So you take the door and put it on the top of the mountain.
Now, the people who take the effort to climb the mountain for you, get access to that sunshine in your heart.
They need to prove that they are willing to take care of you and let you in their sunlight as well. They need to show they are willing to take efforts as well.
That’s how you protect your energy.
That’s how you become selective at times whom you choose to help and how much you choose to offer.
It might seem hard, like you’re being mean or something.
But trust me when I say, setting boundaries has helped me a lot. It has saved my time and energy to a great extent. I’d like to encourage you all to set healthy boundaries.
