Dear Fabulous Girl,
Setting boundaries is one of the most important things you can do for yourself and for those you love.
Please remember, beautiful friend, that every minute taken away from you by something unimportant is a minute stolen from those that you love, and those things that you love. We can never get our minutes back, and when we spend them doing things that don’t even matter to us, or on relationships that make us feel bad about ourselves, we are truly choosing those minutes over the minutes and the people who matter.
Rather than thinking about keeping things, people and situations out of your life and all of the guilt that can come along with it when you approach it from that perspective, think about PROTECTING your time, yourself, your mood, the best of you from ANYTHING that will keep you away from your family, your few most precious friendships, your goals and your life purpose.
It is not bad to preserve all that is good and true and productive about yourself for things that matter most. You are not selfish or mean or cowardly. There is only one of you and there are only 24 hours in a day. If we don’t set boundaries, the best of us gets taken up quickly.
You can do it. It will be okay.
You are phenomenal, and be brave.
