A friend of mine made a post earlier talking about toxicity and boundaries – it goes like this ..

“Toxic people make us think we’re holding a grudge – when in reality we’re only holding a boundary”

So yes – with this truth in mind – let’s talk about boundaries – it’s simple.

Boundaries are about taking responsibility for our own lives. God gives us freedom to choose to live within His boundaries or outside of them – and to live outside of God’s boundaries means to accept the consequences.

Living inside God’s boundaries brings blessings, and yes – living outside of them brings destruction and death

A person with healthy boundaries takes responsibility for his own life and allows others to live theirs – the goal of boundaries is to make sacrifices for people when appropriate, but – never in a destructive manner.

We should be available for people in a crisis, but unavailable to indulgent demands – being gracious is not a blank check for others to continually drain our emotional account.

Saying “yes” out of fear of rejection is really a selfish motive for being kind – being kind in order to gain someone’s favor smacks of hypocrisy and shows a definite need for boundaries.

Fear of someone’s disapproval can lead to codependency – which is – the unhealthy alternative to interdependency.

Friends – we can be kind, gentle and loving – we can do this with boundaries in place – it’s God’s way – and there is no other way.

We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – love wins period

“Let what you say be simply ‘Yes’ or ‘No’; anything more than this comes from evil” Matthew 5:37
