With every step you climb another mountain
With every breath it's harder to believe
You make it through the pain
Weather the hurricanes
To get to that one thing
Just when you think the road is going no where

You can go higher
You can go deeper
There are no boundaries above and beneath you ...
~ Adam Lambert ~ No Boundaries ~

There is a connection between healthy boundaries and self-love. Self-love enables us to have strong boundaries and then these exact boundaries enhance our lives. A boundary can be physical, mental, emotional or spiritual and within these four domains, we have receptive boundaries which are self- protective and expressive boundaries which are respectful of others.
So where does the negative reaction come from ... when others think you have alienated yourself, built a wall and “have changed or seem angry”. You see whether your boundary seems like a high and thick wall built of strong boulders with no way in, or low and weak and easily to breech ... neither of these types of boundaries serves us well. You can ensure that no one can get in but you can also isolate yourself from possible intimacy and support.
... our first and last love is self love ...
Maybe personal boundaries have been given a bad rap. Personally it is not about keeping others out, or being secretive. It is about selectively choosing ... whom you have in your life and how you spend your moments. When you have like-minded people in your life, the boundaries don’t seem to matter. Why? because boundaries are as important to them as they are to you. It seems pretty simple and it really is. Making the most of THIS life is the secret. Always, always, always the choice is yours. And at times when you are unsure ... sit in stillness and listen to what you already know within ...
