It took me years to understand how important it was for me to set boundaries and honour my needs. I would feel guilty and uncomfortable putting my needs first and and when I did learn I faced the wrath of those who were so used to taking without giving back or those who just assumed I would always be there for them at their convenience. The first few “Nos” were tough but it got easier with time to say No, Not Now, Goodbye or Enough.

Today’s card is a timely reminder to invest more in our own inner selves, to honour our own needs and space. Even if it means disconnecting from those who use us, or waste our time or take endlessly from us. It is finding that inner balance, reaching that space where our own self love outweighs what the other person’s reaction to us being assertive means.
