Here’s how to set boundaries in your life.
In an episode of A Life You Love, host Renee Evans and guest Havilah Cunnington, founder of Truth To Table, talk about setting up boundaries in life. We are all allowed to say no and set up boundaries in our lives. We are our own steward of our own life.
Havilah shares her own experience of how she was able to learn about boundaries. As a Christian leader who grew up in a minister’s house, she has always made herself available to everybody. She never allowed herself to say no because she thought that it was not Godly.
“I did not understand boundaries or know anything about boundaries until I had a crisis in my life,” Havilah said.
When she experienced postpartum depression, God led her through the process of healing. And one step towards her healing was setting up boundaries in her life.
“Boundaries are simply where I begin and where you end. Or where I end and you begin. We’re owners of our own space and that’s our stewardship. So, when I’m clear on what I need to own, life gets so much easier. When I am owning everybody else’s space, life gets really complex,” she explained.
For us to learn how to set up boundaries, we must first need to know that God made us responsible for ourselves. No one else is responsible for our life, our attitude, and our choices, it’s ours and only we can take care of those.
“I had to learn what God held me responsible for and those were three distinct things. My feelings, how I feel about life, my attitudes, what I think about life and my choices, what I do in my life. Those things were in my yard and I get to steward those areas and no one else is responsible.”
