About the art
This is another piece made while processing. Art as a way to step into my own power. To become ok with putting myself first. Below is some writing that accompanies this piece.
Blocking someone’s number because they are toxic as fuck.
Telling someone—over and over—that you don’t accept how they treat you.
“If you keep talking to me like this I am going to hang up the phone.”
Refusing to let someone gaslight the shit out of you.
Standing up for yourself the way you would stand up for someone else— someone you love.
This is what setting boundaries looks like. It’s something that in my 32nd goddamn year of life I’m finally learning the art of. I’m learning how to stop letting others drain me. To keep them from drinking from my glass. And never filling it back up.
Maybe you have someone who used to be your #1. A relative. A friend. Or a partner.
Maybe the way your relationship with this person used to look, in all of it’s supportive and satisfying glory, is keeping you from accepting how it feels now. It feels different. A lot different.
Or, maybe this person never felt safe but you really wanted them to. You projected onto this person what you hoped for out of the relationship. Sure, you know they love you, and you love them, so you deal with them. Deal with their bullshit.
When you see their name pop up on your phone, your stomach drops. You get an email from them and your heart starts pounding. You second guess yourself constantly when you are around this person, or even just texting this person. But you allow the relationship to keep going anyway. Just the way it is. Because it used to be great. Or it could someday be great.
Stop doing this. Just. Fucking. Stop. Save yourself. .
Set unapologetic and stern boundaries. Today. Do it now.
If being a mom has taught me anything, it’s that I don’t have time for other people’s bullshit. Cutting out the BS has brought me more mental clarity and emotional freedom than I have ever had. Ever.
Put you first. For once. Do it.
And, stop letting assholes drink out of your glass without refilling it.
