How to Set Healthy Boundaries

Words of wisdom to live by. Thank you MakeItUltra! LP


boundaries.jpg“I encourage people to remember that “No” is a complete sentence.” ~ Gavin de Becker

1. Identify current boundary crossers
The first step in setting healthy boundaries is identifying who it is that is the boundary crosser. How does this person make you feel? Most likely, telling this person how you feel will get you no where. They may even get satisfaction from hearing your plea. Remember, it is not uncommon for boundary crossers to be very purposeful in their boundary crossing behavior. This means they often know that they are doing it! If you feel taken advantage of, oppressed or bullied, it is important to make the conscious decision to change how you are interacting with them. Keep in mind, none of this will happen overnight. But, it definitely won’t happen unless you decide with the utmost conviction that something needs to change.

2. Consider how your past influences your present
Were you taught to set healthy boundaries? If…

This is so very true. Is it just human nature to be afraid of the unknown? Prejudging without taking the time to learn and understand is just plain ignorant. LP

Dirty Sci-Fi Buddha

Astronaut Chris Hadfield wryly points out, “people want to believe stuff, but they don’t want to try and understand it.”  There’s an important implication here:  the FUN of knowledge is in trying to understand!  When it’s relegated to blind belief then it becomes dead and dogmatic; it’s only when we pursue its never-attainable completion that we get to continuously revel in discovery. 😆

White Supremacists Enter Houston’s 3rd Ward Carrying Confederate Flags & Racist Slogans

All I have to say is, Thank-you Donald Trump for lifting the hoods off of the existing racists & bigots in America. If by some miracle Trump does get into the White House, we can expect to see more of these shameless displays. The question is “How is America going to recover if Trump does not become our President?” For I am sure just as I am aware of the people in my life that are for Trump, I know you too know quite a few of his followers as well. Will be able to honestly see them in the same light as before? LP

United States Hypocrisy

Armed with assault rifles, confederate flags and white supremacist slogans, a group of the extreme fascist right-wing calling itself ‘white lives matter’ stood on the grounds of the Houston Chapter of the historic civil rights organization – the N.A.A.C.P. – to sing the praises of police officers who’ve killed unarmed Black people and decry activists who’ve spoken out against police abuse. They claimed to be exercising their “second amendment right to defend ourselves”, despite their going into the overwhelmingly black third ward to spread their toxic agenda.

Perhaps not surprisingly these white supremacists with their stated pro-cop agenda were barricaded and protected by police officers. It goes without saying that the response to this demonstration on the part of police was completely different from their response to Black Lives Matter demonstrations. Imagine for a moment organizers of a #BLM march carrying assault rifles and wearing bullet proof vests! You can’t imagine it…
