I just realized that boundaries are not just about what you allow others to do to or not do around you. Sometimes boundaries are about who you can let in and need to firmly keep out. I am not talking about my family of origin here. I am done referring to them specifically. I am talking about all people. Today I had to make such a decision. The person doesnt need to know and I will never be rude or unkind around him/her and I will have to see the person again. But the person will not be allowed to know my thoughts, my ideas or progress to a friendship role. In the past, I let almost anyone in too far too fast. No more. Just sharing something I hadnt considered a boundary before. Have a good day!!
