It’s okay to say NO
It’s difficult to see a world in pain.
It hurts to watch others hurting.
But we weren’t made to save, carry or rescue.
We were made to empower.
Ask yourself if the situation you’re wondering about is giving another power or taking their power away? And if your need to save, rescue or carry might be your own way of avoiding pain?
And if what you find surprises you, know that boundaries aren’t only necessary, they’re healthy.
