Shame and boundaries

Do you walk around feeling shame?

Shame defined a painful emotion caused by the consciousness of guilt, shortcoming, or impropriety.

Not all feelings are guilt are wrong. If you are convicted by God that you have sinned, then you know what to do; make it right.

The shame we are talking about here is the shame we heap upon ourselves when we worry about what others think of us.

Sometimes we can feel shame when someone else behaves inappropriately or violates our boundaries, we set limits with them and they get mad at us.

Ask yourself honestly, did I do something sinful or wrong?

Or did I create a boundary that someone doesn't like because they are not getting what they want?

We are only responsible for our own actions and thoughts. We are not responsible for how someone responds to healthy boundaries that we set.

Boundaries are set for our good and safety; you are not to blame if someone doesn't like your boundary.

Boundaries protect us from danger, like the picture above.

What if we stopped allow people to control our emotions?
