Do you control your feelings, or do your feelings control you? Lots of us let guilt, anger, or self-criticism be the boss of us, which makes a total mess of things.

You may say to yourself, “I just need to get over it.” or “I’ve got to stop thinking that way.” But the truth is this tactic rarely works, and in fact, it can make things worse.

Three Boundaries That Will Set You Free

Oh girl, I need boundaries!

Just like a child is more secure when she has boundaries, I am learning that I am more free to be me when I have boundaries too.

As I’m learning how to identify with my identity and find myself in God’s view of me, I am learning that boundaries help me.

Boundaries help me stay close to God and my true identity.

How Do You Set Boundaries?

Spill The Beans

Jennifer,

I need some advice on how to maintain a boundary when I’m not at work.  I work at the church that I attend!  I truly feel that I have not been to worship anymore.  People ask me to do things that should be done during my workweek.  I have been pulled out of my class while I was teaching to work!   I love helping people, but I need a better way to help people understand I’m not at work . If I don’t do it, they will go to the Student Minister who can’t say no either.
