I did a thing today. It was scary and hard. I was afraid I would be rejected. I was afraid I would be blamed. I was afraid it would stir the pot and that would override my right to feel safe. I was worried I would have to compromise. I was worried I wouldn't be welcome any more. I was scared the drama it would cause would outweigh my right to say no. But I did a thing and asked for help. I drew a boundary and I was met with love and support. I was respected and valued. I was honored and heard. Today I reclaimed a little part of me and allowed myself a take up just a bit more space.
