So I decided to sit and meditate about this issue. And the words that I heard were profound and easy to remember.
We need boundaries so that we can be free.
We need to balance our yeses and no's so that we can feel safe.
When we feel safe, we don't need any boundaries.
Perhaps the boundaries are to help us to have enough "me" time so that we can hear the small still voice that tells us if we are hungry or tired or in love. Animals have all the time in the world to listen to their small still voices.They have a lot to teach us about boundaries.
