If you’re feeling burnt out, frustrated, annoyed, and resentful... odds are you’re carrying something that isn’t yours to carry.
In the language of boundary systems — we would call this a permeable boundary. One that is connected, and not protected. For us people pleasing, empath, save the world types this boundary system doesn’t lead to the land of rainbows and butterflies...it leads to, “how the heck did I get here? Who am I? Where am I?!” You see, we adopt this strategy at a SUPER young age... and because of this we developed boundaries (or lack thereof) bc we’ve been conditioned to gain value & a sense of self-esteem by doing instead of being. Maybe, your inherent value was not honored - therefore you found a compensatory strategy that would help fill the void, by doing. By pleasing. By shutting down your truth in trade for the perceived security that comes with not rocking the boat.
A lot of women, and myself included, take on a lot of responsibility. For other people’s experiences / feelings, etc. And most of it isn’t ours to carry. But we have to take this deeper to get out of it. What’s my energy? What’s mine? And what’s their’s to carry? What’s their energy? Why am I carrying this? What is my motivation here?
When we release everyone else to their path, what we find, is a path that leads us back home. To our truth. To our voice. To our power.
This path sets you free... so that you can be free to... create anew. Stay in your lane, girlfriend.
