Setting up a fence.
I once heard it said… Boundaries are compassionate.
Without boundaries, people get hurt.
When you truly love others your boundaries are well defined.
When you don’t know how to love someone who is hard to love… you need to set up better boundaries… you do.
You can love them freely when you have done your work.
Boundaries show all of you…. while showing exactly what you hold sacred.
It shows what is valuable…
What is allowed..
What is protected.
It’s good to go around and check on things.
Does this fence still need to be here?
Can I let them in here…yet?
Or sometimes you find it already tested…
How do you feel about that?
there are tender shoots growing here…
young still on the vine.
Still so much growth to happen.
So back up it goes.
they can grow up unabused
they can grow strong.
and a Guardian watches over it all.
