A question has been welling up from within for me lately:
“Where do I end and the ‘other’ begin?”
A loaded question, I know – ripe with paradoxical implications.
In taking personal responsibility for what shows up in my life, something I’ve taken to calling “Radical Responsibility,” I am finding myself up against an age old wall of taking TOO MUCH upon myself.
What I find even more interesting is that two of my three children have some significant personal boundary issues. In getting REAL with myself, I see the issues in them are alive in me as well, if not deeply hidden. This has been a constant process of discovery that always takes me deeper into my being.
What kind of personal boundaries do you grapple with?
How do you strike the balance between taking responsibility for what is yours and allowing the ‘other’ to be as they are?
