Walter White and Kindness?
I bet my feature image caught your attention! Kindness isn’t really associated with the fictional character Walter White, from the television show Breaking Bad. Kindness doesn’t really radiate from this anti-hero! But, to set boundaries and/or live life by your own terms – you’re gonna need a bit of his “badass-ness” to stand firm.
My Terms or Your Terms
I feel powerless over my own life when I am living life by somebody else’s terms, someone else’s conditions or charge. I am not honoring my own authenticity. I am letting someone else control how I feel or how I should live my life; resulting in feeling like I am never enough. Such as: good enough, smart enough, loving enough, pretty enough, etc…
Life on My Terms
Scary stuff this is, defining my own terms. I didn’t even know it was a thing, until recently, when a wise person indicated I needed to do so!
It is a completely new mindset for me. A powerful mindset; it is another way of thinking about setting boundaries!
I like it.
Here is where Walter fits in: I don’t have to be as tough as Walter White, but there is strength needed to set boundaries and there is a wee bit of fun to the strength energy of “badass!”
Another Word For Boundaries
Living life on my terms mean I am respectfully setting boundaries where I need to, to live my life the way I want to, instead of yielding to the ways of others. Compromise is not forgotten, it is a mindful act of creating a win-win.
What Are Your Terms?
Defining my terms means I am embracing my reality, my limits, my uniqueness. My life is my way, because I am me!
I will do my best. I will be good to others, and live life on my own terms, (with a little zip of badass from Walter when my inner strength waivers).
Just for today, I will be kind to myself and live life by my terms. Just for today, I will be kind to you, and respect how you live life by your terms. Our lives may be different. Our terms very different. But let us be kind and respect each other.
S, ❤️ 😎
