Difficult people often do not want to understand, and you cannot make them want to. Boundaries are what you are willing to do and not do.
You need to clarify your boundaries and then learn to express them to the difficult people in your life.
Whether you've slept around or prefer to curl up on the couch and watch Netflix, they don't care. You don't have to pretend to be someone else to keep him interested. They simply care about you and want to please you and make you happy. Talk about what hurts you; apologize when you mess up. The nice guy won't be the first one to run away when he finds out you like him.
Those horrendous, toxic, gross, tug of war relationships might feel like love just because they involve emotions and are confusing.
But when you find a nice guy, you'll just know that it's real.
You do this while treating them with respect and kindness. Nurturing yourself means that you nourish and feed yourself with what you need in order to flourish.
It is absolutely essential that you take care of your emotional, physical, spiritual, relational, and mental needs. Fear keeps you stuck in your difficult relationships by holding you back from doing the right thing.
Then I met a nice guy who showed me how much more fulfilling life is when you let your guard down and allow yourself to be vulnerable. He will protect your precious heart because he is just as sensitive as you.
He is willing to listen to your fears and concerns.
However, many times we give very little thought to guarding our heart.
This verse tells us to guard our heart above all else. It should be more important than guarding our body.
I always knew where that money was because it was important to me and I was guarding it. You know its important and you don’t want anything to happen to it.
