The Holidays are not easy for some of us......
our little family of three also suffers sadness this season- not everything is always as it seems- but we make the best of it... focusing on each other and on all the wonderFULL people in our lives who love us; we learn to stand up for our worthiness and self love in the face of troublesome situations and people....
I have always been one that forgives very easily and sees the "glass half full"... a "Pollyanna" is what I have always been.... but as someone who loves me recently advised me:
"Claudia, Pollyanna was only 14"...(yes, yes and thank you *you know who*)...
No more allowing people to treat me badly.
Allowing ourselves to be repeatedly treated badly by the same person/s is our own personal responsibility. Developing strong boundaries about what we will and won't accept and enforcing these is a great way to protect ourselves from regular offenders.
People can hurt you and break your heart, and sometimes they will: but only YOU can allow them to continuously hurt you.
Value yourself enough to choose to spend time with people who treat you the way you treat them.
Know your worth.
Know when it is "enough" and move on from the people who keep chipping away at your happiness.
