Where’s the end of your rope?

Is there an end to your rope?

What’s your tolerance?

I’d venture to say that we ALL have an end to our rope.

Sadly, some people choose to continually length their rope rather than reaching the end.

When your rope has no end . . . there are no boundaries.

Ah yes! If you’re feeling defeated and downtrodden and feeling taken advantage of, you probably are.

The difficult truth is that you got yourself into this mess, and you’re going to have to get yourself out of it.

“THEY” didn’t do this to you!

YOU did this to you!

This was not a conscious decision you made one day . . . It happened over time. You allowed people and circumstances to stretch the boundaries (lengthen your rope) . . . and as long as you allowed this, the more territory they would usurp.

Next thing ya know, you’re feeling overwhelmed and empty and stuck . . . The grief Cycle kicks in . . .

1. Denial and isolation – (link is to source article)

2. Anger

3. Bargaining

4. Depression

5. Acceptance

Whence you achieve acceptance, you’re FINALLY ready to do something about it to reclaim your self.

Tie a knot at the end of the rope to stop the freefall.

Remember, this is not how much you CAN give of yourself, it’s about how much you are willing to give of yourself . . . and it’s totally OK to be a little bit selfish for the sake of self preservation.

Please take care of yourself!

We all love you, and it pains us to see you allowing others to suck your vibrancy from you.

Permission granted!

You’re welcome!
