beautifully rooted || boundaries, part ii.

{photo by Carl Zoch}

I’m a “yes” girl, a people-pleaser. I hate disappointing those I love, and while I wouldn’t like to admit it, there have been times with that fear of disappointment has led me to relationships that often became one-sided, friendships in which I became the giver and someone else the taker.

And it’s hard, isn’t it, because there’s a voice in the back of my head asking “What would Jesus do?” and the verses that spot Him quietly approaching the mountain top alone just can’t be found in my addled brain. Instead, I find verses about turning the other cheek, about giving someone my shirt when my coat has been taken.

Read today's post over on Beautifully Rooted.
