You Are Replaceable
I hope your Sunday is off to a great start, and you are getting some rest today. In today’s podcast, I share a life-changing principle that can help ward off anger, frustration, resentment, and the like. No matter how good you are, someone else can and may take your place if you aren’t available.
You Are Replaceable is a guiding principle that can help you shape your boundaries in all relationships — family, self, work, and others. For example, do you start a job feeling you have to do whatever it takes to prove yourself and neglect your family and other responsibilities (self-care)? Do you subject yourself to immoral behavior (cursing, demeaning responses, etc.) for a paycheck?
Do you spend all day cleaning the house to prove that you are a good housewife and don’t have the energy to do what you love? Do you stay up all night studying for an exam to prove you are a good student and neglect quality sleep? Do you do everything for your capable child instead of instilling accountability, gratitude (for their functional body), respect, and teamwork? Do you stay in unsupportive relationships because you believe that abuse and neglect are normal and that there isn’t anyone who will give you the respect you deserve?
People often treat you how you let them treat you. You have the right to set your boundaries and have the support you need to be the best person you can be. In addition, you have the right to take care of your body so that it can support the work you are here to do.
So, where do you draw your lines? What boundaries do you have in life, and how can you maintain them?
