Setting healthy boundaries.

This is a great video about setting healthy boundaries and dealing with toxic relationships or “emotional vampires” in your life. These are people who with high frequency are set on their own issues and problems and who continuously pull you into the drama that is their life. They will very seldom take advice or guidance if you offer it and seem just to repeatedly complain, gripe or fixate on their issue or issues.

It is easy to be manipulated or trapped in these relationships, especially if you are a compassionate or caring individual. But it is healthy to set boundaries and it is your human right to do so, especially if a situation is negatively affecting your emotional, spiritual or mental health.

In this video, Margie Warrell, a life coach and author, talks about ways to set healthy boundaries and to avoid becoming a victim of emotional abuse and emotional vampires.

“True humility is intelligent self-respect which keeps us from thinking too highly

or too meanly of ourselves. It makes us modest by reminding us how far

we have come short of what we can be.”

– Ralph W. Stockman –

Nice video however, I found myself reading the teletype after a while. I have found myself in the presence of fools before and it is not easy to listen to them. Yes the fool is full of his or her’s own words. Proverbs 14:7 Leave the presence of a fool, Or you will not discern words of knowledge.

Ah, alas this world is rife with foolishness and people who regurgitate it. I’ve also played the fool many times, so I know. And I still do many foolish things. I thank God that He is so forgiving and so willing to work on me when I pray with my whole heart 🙂 Unfortunately, we can’t escape every “fool” or difficult person in our life, but sometimes we have to learn ways to approach people differently or communicate differently. Love you!
