“Sometimes, people are too agreeable,” I said to my friend, Frieda.
“I agree,” she said.
We laughed about her response.
This conversation reminded me of the comment that unhealthy relationships are run by the least conscious partner.
“A healthy relationship will never require you to sacrifice your friends, your dreams, or your dignity.” – Mandy Hale
- Realize that the God and Goddess are inside of you.
Recently, I said to a friend that Wicca gave me the strength to leave a bad marriage. My friend asked, “How?”
“Because the God and Goddess are inside of me. And I shouldn’t be treated badly,” I replied.
“There comes a time in your life when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh.” – Jose N. Harris
- Stand for yourself.
In recent months, I’ve been helping my elderly parents a lot. I’m their private Uber. There are times when I say, “I will help you. And I also need to go home and make dinner…”
I’ve learned to be assertive when appropriate. I call it “stand for yourself.” It is not aggressive—as in stepping on another. Instead, I stand for my values.
“Everybody deals with situations differently. Some walk away and disregard, while others throw their toys out of the pram.” ― Charmaine J Forde
- Ask the Goddess for clarity in who you are.
Without clarity about who you truly are, it’s hard to stand up for yourself. Are you okay because people approve of you? How about when they do not approve?
This is where nice boundaries come in.
Here is a prayer to help you hold onto your boundaries.
Guide me to set appropriate boundaries.
Let me stand for myself.
Let me celebrate the divinity You have placed in me.
So mote it be.
May these insights support your path.
