Boundaries vs honesty… day one

This is a very messy topic for me.

 Because of my family history, I grew up with no boundaries.

Physical. Emotional. Or Mental.

  This has been a long standing wound.  And I still fail to navigate it.

I used to tell anyone who would listen what had happened. What was happening. What was happening in that very moment.

Deep.

Down inside of me.

I set myself up.

For pain and betrayal.

So for me, honesty is not the very best policy.

I am honest with the people who I trust and feel won’t judge me…

you all…

here.

I am not about to announce to all those other people that I am an absolute nut job.

So….

What is honesty and what does it mean to be honest?

Day one.

And done.

Thanks be to

God.

  1. Sometimes I think we create our own lies to cope or allow bad behavior. I have learned it is important to be honest with ourselves or we can never be real with others. Sometimes honesty reveals out original wickedness. In fact, I have begun to say this to myself – I allow myself to speak the truth to myself and then I say to myself “you wicked woman.” Then I reach out to God for forgiveness. When I say wicked I don’t necessarily mean “wicked witch evil acts”…I simply mean the original sin, the flesh nature, the world in me – comes out so obnoxiously. Anyway…here is to your new year and your continued life healing. May your pilgrimage bring you joy and bless our God.
