Thank you for sharing this wise words.
It is a problem that I’ve often struggled with.
In our society, many people tend to impose their will mandatory.
I’m used to serve people and have learned that if you are clear and willing to give an example, people will often still find you a nice person. It has taken many years before I had the courage to do so.
Because of my physical limitations & dependence on others I had to learn boundaries and their need… even Christ had boundaries so, you hit a nerve with this which has verified my conclusions — that it’s nnot selfishness but wisdom to sometimes say NO, not now or “I can’t at this season ~ Blessings friend, Deborah
Thank you so much for sharing Deborah – your words bless me. Christ did have boundaries, and I do think God wants us to as well – when we are pulled in all directions by people, we have a tendency to lose sight or connection with Him. It’s not selfish to say no, it’s healthy. xo
If one sets right,meaningful, and socially relevant boundaries for himself he won’t have to make unwanted compromises in life…….can sail through against all hurdles…….Abraham Lincoln’s life history is an example by itself..
