“Relationships are about two individuals who maintain their own lives and create another one together.” Sometimes when we are in relationship we put all of ourselves into it and neglect our own needs. Our desire for union and oneness can lead us to a place where our boundaries begin to disappear. We forget to check in with ourselves about what we need or want before we say yes to others' requests from us. Today, begin to bring a sense of balance to your life and to your relationships. Begin to become aware of where and with whom you give away your power in relationships for the sake of harmony-"just to keep the peace." Real relationship balance happens when both people stand in their power. Today be certain that you are being true to your own needs and then you will find the peace and balance that you have been seeking.


Just for today, I recognize that my needs are just as important as the needs of the other people in my life. I respect my boundaries and I insist that others respect them too. I maintain boundaries but remain open to the good of others. I am at harmony with all of the people, places and things that surround me in this word. I am at peace. And so it is.
