When to say Yes, How to say No, to take control of your life. That’s boundaries.

If you don’t have boundaries in your life, you are a danger to yourself and to those around you. Boundaries help to create peace between us, God and those around us. In your property you have boundaries to mark where your property ends and where your neighbor’s property starts and ends. In the spiritual world, boundaries are just as real,but often harder to see. We are responsible to others and for others. People are exhausted because of trying to please others, their own feelings comes second. If i do not own my life, my choice become limited. The most often excuse we give “What will people say if i don’t attend or do this” 2 Corinthians 9:7 You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” If you appreciate boundaries, you value differences. If i don’t attend your party it does not mean the relationship is over. if you take it the wrong way, it shows your level of maturity. You are a spiritual infant and must be fed with milk not bones, bones will choke you.

Dr. Henry Cloud and Dr. John Townsend “Boundaries”
