Every thought. Every word. Every action.
In every moment we teach people how to treat us.
Children are vulnerable and need protection and guidance–that is the way they learn about boundaries (theirs and others), and what is acceptable.
If we were raised by people who didn’t create boundaries for themselves, or didn’t create boundaries for us as children, we find ourselves as adults with fuzzy boundaries.
For the most part, I believe our caregivers did the best they could with the tools they had available to them. Often, they were not taught/given the tools needed to create boundaries.
As women who are ready to take responsibility for our healing, it is imperative for us to begin the retraining process for ourselves. We can’t go into the past and change things. BUT we can choose differently today, so that we learn new tools and new ways of being in the world.
We can have compassion for the child within us that never learned what she needed to learn in order to create healthy boundaries, AND we can step into the strong powerful woman who will commit to stand up for the inner child.
It is a process. It takes time, compassion, commitment, love, and strength, and you are powerful and aware enough to accomplish it.
If you no longer want to feel like a vulnerable child, and are ready to stand firm in your empowered divine feminine self, private message me. You are worthy.
