it’s one of the deepest forms of self-love and respect we can practice self-respect means recognizing your own worth understanding that you deserve to be treated with dignity and care not just by others but primarily by yourself and here lies a crucial Point how can we expect others to respect us if we fail in this task ourselves when we give Second Chances without deep reflection on the reasons and consequences we risk sending a message that our self ECT is negotiable it’s as if we’re telling the world that it’s okay to treat us less carefully than we deserve setting boundaries isn’t about building walls it’s about drawing clear lines in the sand that say this is where I begin and this is where you end healthy boundaries allow us to interact with others from a position of strength and balance not sacrifice or victimization think of the times you felt drained undervalued or frustrated because you gave yet another chance to some something or someone these feelings indicate that

to remain on the same step giving second chances that lead nowhere or you can use each mistake as momentum to climb to the next step leaving behind old patterns and reaching New Horizons however

growth occurs with each mistake offer yourself understanding and forgiveness knowing that each misstep is actually a step toward the person you’re becoming so the next time you’re faced with the
