“No, it’s time we set some boundaries.”
I’ve always wanted to rewrite the ending to The Giving Tree, on behalf of the tree and for myself. It’s okay to give. Sometimes, it’s okay to sacrifice. But allowing others to damage us for the sake of their comfort or convenience is unhealthy. In a healthy relationship, no one should be expected to give to the point of long term damage. It’s okay to set boundaries and take care of ourselves physically, mentally, and spiritually.
