A departure from my regular content, this was something I needed to address. Regularly scheduled programming will resume Sunday! xoxo, mercedes.
*Regarding the annotation I made in video about additional thoughts on creating boundaries – what happened to me with the friendship I referenced was a significant learning experience in terms of listening to one’s intuition and observing how things *feel*, rather than racking your mind for “rational” explanations to explain your feelings, and avoid creating boundaries. As we grow/evolve/expand as people, our energy naturally shifts and changes. This can mean we are no longer comfortable interacting with energies (people/situations/anything) that we used to be, and there really doesn’t need to be a deeper explanation than that – that something no longer feels resonant. Being able to first tune in to those feelings, and then actually listen to them, I feel is critical to practicing boundary control in all aspects of life. This is a huge learning process for me, as I don’t think I ever realized I even had an issue with boundaries. Yet upon reflection, it’s very clear it’s something I need to work on. I hope this resonates with some of you!
