Boundaries

Of all the lessons I have learned in this lifetime, coming to understand... truly understand... the value, nay... the sanctity of boundaries has been among the most important.

Before I understood this lesson, my life was, to be blunt, a wreck. I did not have good boundaries of my own, nor did I maintain them. Even worse, I had little concept of the boundaries of others. Even as I started learning about boundaries, I still found myself crossing them quite frequently. True, sometimes I did so not out of malice, but simple unawareness. And yet, even when done in ignorance, I saw the grievous harm that could still be done. Even then, it still took many times of being on both sides of the boundary violations for me to "get it" on a primal level.

Boundaries matter. They matter in ways few other things do.

Lesson learned.

Ever forward...
