Honoring and caring for all that lies within our boundaries isn’t easy. You might find that saying “no” seems impossible to do. There’s a good chance it leaves you feeling resentful. It’s time to learn how to challenge the way things are(not) working out for you, create a plan designed, based on your personal insight and wisdom, and end the struggle with boundaries as you learn to live a healthy and balanced life.
