Self-care is all about healthy choices: choosing how we live and how we are treated by others.
Living with addiction puts us at risk in ways we hadn’t imagined. I often moved boundaries around to accommodate others. But when I saw how that was hurting me, I was able to step back and enforce my boundaries.
We are not responsible for the chaos. It’s not our fault. I won’t allow it in my house.
I’ve often seen this attitude help addicts make different choices for themselves.
Boundaries benefit everyone.
