Forgive Me But, Um, No.

One of the keys to happiness, or at least contentment, in my opinion, is boundaries.

Boundaries are clear delineations of what is and is not OK.

In my experience, people (myself included) tend to struggle with the “clear” bit. We all have our ideas of what is needed and what isn’t; what counts as productive work and what doesn’t. The more we can be clear about both of those sides in ourselves, the healthier relationships we’ll have. When we hold back from voicing what excites us and what rubs us the wrong way, we’re doing a disservice to our own integrity.

Honestly, there’s something so rewarding about owning my decisions. The more I practice not worrying about what others think of my own needs, the freer I feel as both an artist and a human.
