Boundaries

I think this is something I’ve gotten better at over the years.

Still there’s always room for improvement.

The most difficult emotion I think I still struggle with, is guilt.

I feel guilty for saying no sometimes.

I feel guilty for pushing some people away, even when I know they’re not the most healthy company to keep.

I feel guilty for making time for myself because it feels selfish on some levels.

But I accept that it is work in progress, and that learning to set healthy and balanced boundaries will always be something worth getting better at.

A Solitary Day

Just one of many much needed ones.

 

 

 

A friend and I were talking the other day about how, as introverts and sensitives, we really need our quiet and alone time, but even then we have a threshold. Try going a week or more without meetups with close friends or without any meaningful human interaction, and even the most introverted person I know would start looking through their whatsapp chats to see which friend they can ask out.

So as I post this and think about how much I need and love the solitude in my life, I am also fully appreciative and thankful for the people who make my life this much more meaningful.

Taiwan 2018 ~ Of Cats and Hidden Lanes

One of the joys of travelling, and especially travelling solo, is being open to unexpected changes to your plans.

I met a cat in a stationery shop.

I looked for “Hidden Lane Cafe” and ended up in a different “Hidden Lane”, but still enjoyed my time exploring the area nonetheless, and ended up getting a nice gift for a friend at one of the nearby shops.

It all works out. Eventually.
