Last week, I wrote a note to a girl for The Letter Project. She's struggling with self-care and setting boundaries. As someone who used to buy into the lie that I had to be everything to everyone, I realized how much it would have helped me, at 22, 24 or 26 to receive a letter telling me otherwise.
As I've gotten older, I've learned that, when we set boundaries, the people who love us don't mind at all. They will not be disappointed or mad. Because healthy relationships allow room for natural boundaries. For years, I worried that if I were to set boundaries with people, they'd be angry or think I wasn't good enough. Y'all! That is satan and he lies. Boundaries are good. Self-care is healthy.
I thought there might be someone out there who needs this reminder today, so I wanted to share the letter I wrote last week. Thanks for reading <3!
