Do you know your boundaries?
What you will not move on?
What others will not invalidate?
What you are deserving of?

Stand firm in those boundaries.
Be utterly selfish.
Say NO and do whatever you want.

Agency, you always have agency.
Others will recognize your boundaries.
They have no right to infringe upon them.

Boundaries protects you.
Shield your heart.
Find your spirit shelter.
Guard your purpose.

Why tolerate those whom harm you?
Harm in the form of poison words.
Harm in the form of a broken system.
Harm in the form of fake relationships.

What are the extent of boundaries?
It’s self preservation.
Mental well being.
Meaningful Romance and Friendship?

You’re right friend, boundaries.
Your needs are yours alone.
They aren’t my business.
They are yours rightfully.

Do you know your boundaries?
What you will not move on?
What others will not invalidate?
What you are deserving of?

Whatever they are,
own them unapologetically.
For that is how you flourish.
