You are a daughter of the Creator of the universe. This site was created to help you to overcome whatever tries to keep you from holding on to this truth.
This is intended to be a place of respite, a place to learn, to listen, to become more aware, to move forward and maybe even to heal.
I am a life and creativity coach and multi-faceted artist. I’ve started this blog because again and again, with female clients and friends, the issue of boundaries comes up. As does the inner turmoil it causes when healthy boundaries aren’t in place.
Do any of these ring true for you?
- People pleasing
- Feeling bad for saying “no”
- Approval seeking
- Trouble setting limits & healthy boundaries with others
- Being afraid of upsetting others
- Difficulty valuing your own needs (or even knowing what they are)
- Taking responsibility for other people’s problems and feelings
- Having a hard time believing in your own worthiness
- Feeling you’re not enough (or what you do is never enough)
If you struggle with these things and have managed to stay out of toxic relationships, count yourself as very fortunate. It’s possible though that you sometimes wonder if you have a magnetic bullseye on your forehead to attract people who drain the life out of you. There’s something to that.
It used to happen to me more than I can count. The difference between then and now is that before, I allowed these sorts of people to take up [way too much] space in my world, but I learned how to effectively deal with them and not pander to them, run after them, or allow them to guilt trip me. (I can usually spot them a mile away, or within a very short time, so that things don’t progress further than they need to.)
The magic ingredient is healthy boundaries. I’m not saying it’s always easy, but it’s possible to live with more balance and peace and value your own needs as much as everyone else’s.
Remember: believing in God does not make you anyone’s doormat. The opposite actually. As a child of God, you are to be treated with dignity and respect. Anyone who cannot honor this needs to either learn to do so or no longer take up your time, your energy and your life.
I can help you to put limits in place for dealing with people and situations that drain the life out of you. Through doing that, you will create more space for the life-giving things you want your life to be about.
