I was in a cab this morning and as we got to the mall entrance, he was about to drop me at a random spot.
If you live in Dubai, then you must be familiar with how cab drivers are. Most of them have bad manners.
When I realized what he was doing, I asked him firmly – but politely – to park properly so I can get down and he did.
Then, as I stepped out of the car, my hand bag’s strap broke and my bag fell.
What’s interesting is that this was an old bag that I was using. The same thing happened to my other bag and I was going to the mall to fix it!
You might think it’s not a big deal, but things like bags and necklaces breaking is a sign of spiritual growth and up-levelling.
I was grateful that I managed to hook the strap to the bag somehow. I still have to visit another mall next week to fix my other bag.
Apart from the moon being in cancer until today and feeling drained because I’m a cancer, I think I’m going through a transition.
My soul is getting to the next level and I’m growing spiritually in so many ways.
Setting Boundaries can be Learned
I want to share that boundaries are so important when you’re manifesting something big like a partner.
Because if you’re not able to set healthy boundaries with others, the Universe can’t give you a healthy and loving relationship.
You can read a blog post about boundaries and manifestation here.
Although I was raised in a home where boundaries didn’t exist and I truly struggled in the past with others because of this, I can tell you that I’m now at a really good place.
The Universe presented me with the situations and lessons that helped me learn this skill and practice it too.
I remember about a month ago, I was taking the elevator in my building. A concierge was assisting a guest to take the elevator with me.
I immediately said to him: “Sorry but I prefer to not share the elevator.” And I closed the elevator door.
That was a breakthrough moment for me. I always struggled with boundaries so found it challenging to speak my truth when it’s not aligned with what the other person wants or expects.
Main Tip for Setting Boundaries
If you’re someone who struggles with this big issue, then I suggest that you start small.
Set boundaries with people who are not close to you and who you don’t have a close relationship with.
So maybe strangers in public, people waiting at a queue or just random encounters that require you to set boundaries.
I can assure you that it gets easier with practice. In the beginning, you will feel uncomfortable and find it difficult to do.
But with time and practice, you will get better at it and you can extend it to family members or close friends.
I also want to add that people who don’t respect your boundaries are not meant to stay in your life.
Know that you’re worthy and that your choices and decisions matter. Do what feels right to you in any situation.
When someone shows resentment or frustration about your boundaries and decisions, it could be a sign for you to let that relationship or connection go.
The right people will respect and honor your boundaries, just like you respect theirs.
Trust that as you grow spiritually and up level, some people will fall out of your life and that’s totally OK.
