Our Sons Deserve the Same Protection.

Allowing them to know you will fight for them just the same can be a start to raising boys and girls that respect each other equally and will stand for respectful behavior towards each other. This tells our sons we don’t expect you to take abuse just because it’s another boy so suck it up, or because it’s a girl and she doesn’t have to observe your boundaries. Fairness in how we handle our children may be a very important part of bettering relationships between men and women.

Most women I know would melt when Luther would sing “A Chair Is Not A Chair…” from his song “A House Is Not A Home”.  I mean…it is Luther. Also, Luther had a very valid point. Material, status, and finances do not determine self-care. YOU do. Take time to determine what you want, get it, and adjust it as necessary.  Maslow would thank you. You will thank yourself too.

Having boundaries will show you who is supportive of you, and who’s toxic to you. Though it can be difficult in the beginning, you need this to take place in your life to see peace manifest. It is important that you do what’s necessary to handle your business and take care of your self in every aspect necessary. Setting boundaries that allow you to handle your priorities is positive, and it’s responsible. Never allow anyone to make you feel guilty for doing what is best for you.

The hurt you will incur makes it harder to move on to the love you deserve. It adds to the baggage you are already working on. I told myself I was hurt because this brother looked like he could be the one. The truth is I was angry because I knew I needed to back up, my intuition told me to slow down something about the time table wasn’t right…and I ignored it. Granted I don’t absolve his behavior, but I realize I could have avoided such. You don’t deserve to be a pit stop for someone to fill up on your goodness only to drive away headed to another destination.

Example, when our women are arrested and beaten or killed, we need men to understand its just as important as when it happens to them. Well, domestic violence, rape, and many other kinds of abuse must be just as important when it happens to men. Your man needs to know he can trust you with his trust, just as you must be able to trust him with your truth. Allowing your relationship to be one sided in this area can cause resentment, and eventually the end of something that could have been beautiful.

My parents were none of these traits, and I used to be upset about it.

If I let them have control, I would have more friends.  I learned as an adult that if you give someone one inch that they may take 5 miles…and a goat…and your private jet…and a bag of your favorite tootsie rolls. In other words, they may take what makes you who you are. No one should ever have that power over you. Henry Cloud said it best: “You get what you tolerate.” Choose to tolerate what you are willing to handle within the reins of who you are.  That is one of the greatest gifts you could ever give yourself.

Check Your Emotions.

First, let us deal with the fact that you have emotions.  I think one of the biggest mistakes in anger or emotional situations is that we forget to acknowledge how we feel. So, be angry. Be sad. Be melancholy. Be aggressively distraught.  Give yourself the time needed to feel how you are feeling. If you are getting to a point where you can not recover from your emotions, consider seeking professional help. It is not healthy to be that emotional for long periods of time.
