As a survivor of child abuse, sexual assaults, a dysfunctional family, stalkers, and narcissistic abuse, I must protect myself. This means that I do not automatically trust anyone. I've been burned countless times by those who claimed to be trustworthy.
I have dealt with abusers, sociopaths, predators, and have been stalked by psychologically dangerous people, including strangers and my own relatives. I have no doubt that some of the stalkers are still watching me on my blog, YouTube, and other forms of social media.
No surprise because toxic people will never ever change. Let's keep in mind that stable people with a sound mind do NOT stalk us, retaliate against us, mob us, try to destroy us, nor abuse us.
Although we cannot fix people, nor change them, we have the power within us to change ourselves. We have the option to choose who can communicate with us and who we choose to weed out of our lives. After the hellish ordeal that I've been through, especially the three ring circus in 2019, I have made significant changes.
I no longer:
1) Accept friend requests on Facebook from strangers.
2) Accept Facebook messages from strangers.
3) Accept emails from strangers.
4) Communicate in any way with strangers.
5) Give my contact information to anyone, including strangers.
6) Accept text messages or phone calls from strangers.
7) Reply to anyone who contacts me through this blog.
8) Offer coaching, help, nor any form of assistance with Benzos, various medicines, chronic pain, narcissistic abuse, etc.
To sum it up, a BIG part of my healing journey is to stand firm in my healthy boundaries. To focus on my peace of mind, life purpose, and to improve my health.
Healthy boundaries means listening to my gut instincts. To honor that still soft voice that alerts me to potential danger. To know that just because someone claims to be a "good person" does NOT mean that they are who they say they are.
Although I love meeting new people on social media and connecting to each of you, please understand that I cannot and will not give my trust away. Ultimately, I've learned the hard way that the ONLY one who I can trust is myself.
Please don't take it personal because it doesn't have anything to do with you. It's merely the new path that I am on and how I maintain my boundaries.
My hope is that you can also learn to trust your own intuition. To listen to that voice within you who alerts you when something may be unsafe. If something feels "off," it's not your imagination. Trust your gut instincts. Only YOU can rescue YOU.
Today, don't blindly give your trust away. This doesn't mean that you live in paranoia or fear. In reality, it means that you do everything within your power to live out your beautiful destiny.
Do what sets your soul on fire! Draw. Write. Paint. Cook. Play music. Dance. Sing. Bird watch. Garden. Walk barefoot along the shore. Tap into your strengths and talents. Create something meaningful to enrich your life.
Empower yourself to become the CEO of your own life; body, mind, and spirit. Consider how you can set healthy boundaries, promote peace of mind, and increase your well-being.
