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.
One thing I can see clearly through blind eyes is that self-reliance is not all it’s cracked up to be.
I used to think that if I could just rely on myself – if I didn’t have to depend on others – then I would experience real freedom.
But, blindness just makes total self-reliance impossible. And, to be honest, sometimes dependence on others can feel like prison bars which keep me from the freedom of independence.
