To encourage you to keep going.
To remind you to be strong.

Published on November 8, 2014 in Picture Quotes

That stress you’ve placed upon your shoulders is going to crush you. Get rid of it. You don’t need to be perfect. You don’t need to have it all together. You don’t need to please everyone. Place that heavy burden on the ground. Throw it into the sea. Expel it from your being. You will be lighter in mind, body, and soul. You have to learn to say no without feeling guilty. Setting boundaries is healthy. You need to learn to respect and take care of yourself.

    Hi, you have mentioned a very good and valid point. We must learn to say ‘no’ when ever it’s required. If we don’t learn it, than we will have carry many unnecessary burden on ourselves. Thanks…:)

    Wow does this ever resonate with me
    as I have been living out the lessons of embracing
    self respect for the last10 days or so and have been
    embracing standing up for myself through respect,
    compassion and forgiveness for both myself and everyonelse.

    I had a huge insightthrough a breakdown this week in how I was allowing myself to be disrespected by subborning my truth not to hurt someonelse.

    The next day I had a lifelong issue breakthrough with my mother around mutual self respect for each other that has transformed our relationship to anew plateau of beingness.

    The synchronicity at play here is joyfilled for me.

    Thank you

    “Learned to say NO without feeling guilty” very well said,
    But I hope I had this courage to say so…

    be careful when you say no, it really is a culture-specific attitude, it might be great in the USA but it could lead to unwelcome social rejection, job loss, heavy stress, segregation in other countries. In those, simply say yes and then do whatever the F you want to…

    I still find it hard to say NO at 64.
    And the abuse from toxic family people is very hurtful
