I didn't understand what this word meant in my turbulent life because my personal boundaries were frequently invaded throughout my childhood and teen years.
I was called, "The Seductress" by a therapist and wanted to attack him in protest !
I didn't know that I was seducing or being seduced by people. This was my unconscious, conditioned modus operandi.
Years later I recognize the tremendous healing in this aspect of my life. I no longer have the desire to seduce or be seduced by anyone.
Now I am working on my need to seek approval.
To please or not to please . . .
Boundary setting is still difficult for me when it comes to desiring to please others. In each situation I look fearlessly at my motives and ask for guidance to make the best decision for myself.
My journey continues to take me to new places within myself where the light needs to shine, to reveal the darkness and to set myself free with God at the helm.
This is my intended course; I embrace it with abandon !
