One thing in life we struggle with [even myself] is that we rarely choose ourselves. When we start to put ourselves first we also set our boundaries in life. It’s ok to choose where you invest in your energy. It’s also ok to say “no”. You have every right to protect your peace and aura. You are allowed to create a safe place to exist in this world.
Do not be afraid to to set boundaries. Boundaries let the right people in. The people you choose to be in your life will strengthen your boundary lines, not cross them.
Do not change what your heart tells you just to keep them near.
Do not compromise what is important in your life just to feel important to them.
Be brave enough to enough to set boundaries and love yourself enough to follow through with them.
