Advocacy

These days I am learning how to advocate for myself.  How to set boundaries for myself and how to say when I am in need of help.  I love this.  I love this because there are SO many times I have told and been told to stand up for others, to advocate for those unable to help themselves, etc.  Rarely have I been taught how to say ‘no’ when I need to, how to set boundaries on my time and what expectations are realistic in various relationships.  These things are so important.  So at home, at school, in particular friendships I am learning that it is not only okay to think about the boundaries I need, but it is actually okay to set and hold those boundaries.  I am certain that in seasons to come, these boundaries will be reassessed and reestablished.  I love growing in boldness.  Maybe in learning boldness in advocating for myself, I will learn how to better advocate for others.
