My sophomore year, I had a lot of breakdowns. I found myself overrun by anxiety and unable to do life well because I was so overwhelmed. I made myself do everything all the time; I never said no to anyone and I believed that, in order to "be successful" I had to act as invincible as Wonder Woman. I think it goes without saying that, at one point, I hit a wall. I crashed, completely exhausted and unsure of what to do. I thought I was healthy; I was in counseling, I was in a good place with Jesus, I was physically healthy, but I still wasn't okay.
When God made us, He didn't make us able to do all the things all the time. He made us as humans, people who bare His image, but are not Him. We are not limitless, we are not able to meet everyone's needs, we are not perfect. When I realized that I'm not invincible--that I have natural-born limits--I knew that something had to change. I needed Jesus to show me how to love myself well in the midst of a chaotic season. And He did.
Friends, let's talk about boundaries.
