i'm not mad. i'm a writer.

Boundaries are hard when you’re flying on a tight aircraft. You, as well as the people around you have got to learn to respect each other’s personal space. Unfortunately, this is merely a great theory at best. The reality is, some people can be very annoying on this flight called life. 😬

These are the ones who come all up in your space and don’t have sense enough to know they’re out of line. It’s amazing how some people have no conscience when it comes to your boundaries and personal space. Then, when you let them know they’re all up in your face and they need to back off, somehow they try to paint you to be the “bad guy.” Nice try! 😂

It’s no secret that the people we travel with in life can be a source of joy or pain. Oddly, the same way we can see the issues in others, we should all be as adamant about seeing the issues in ourselves and how we handle the personal space of others. We should be committed to making sure that we aren’t taking personal liberties that cramp others on this flight. Whether it’s saying too much to people you don’t have a real relationship with, or making a controversial or hostile comment on someone else’s social media post; some people clearly don’t have any sense of boundaries. Some people see no problem with complimenting someone’s spouses appearance, or offering your unsolicited wisdom to someone who didn’t ask for it. It’s amazing how some people just seem to do entirely too much. To my coachable friends; please make sure you aren’t one of these people. The last thing you want to do is cross lines with people on this journey called life. See, some people are desperately trying to go places just like you and they don’t need you making things awkward or uncomfortable. Let’s make an effort to be cognizant that we aren’t the pilot of other people’s lives; only our own. Just because you’re older, “wiser,” more educated than other people; it still doesn’t make you the authority or leader to everyone you come across. There are so many going around here trying to be teachers, Spiritual voices and gurus to people who never asked them to be that. No one likes a know it all. Especially one who’s always trying to advise other people and not succeeding in their own lives. It’s simple. Talk less. Offer your support to those who want it. Otherwise, stay in your lane, mind your business and do what’s best for you. If no one is asking you to be their voice of reason or seeking out your leadership; you’re out of line to be stepping into their affairs with your “expertise.”

I personally live my life being who I am authentically, and those who subscribe to it, love it! They get it. Those who are in some teaching mode, trying to help me and aid in “fixing” me and who want me to think like them, are not doing anything but frustrating themselves and wasting their time. If you have people in your life like this, you can relate too. You also know how annoying it is to fly with these folk who don’t respect boundaries; but they eventually “get it” when they see you flying above their level of thinking. The bottom line is they need to sit down somewhere and get out of your way. Life is not meant to be a battle or a fight with people who you aren’t called to. Simply create some boundaries and make sure you keep your commitment to what you tolerate and what you don’t. Those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.

Fly high! Enjoy your ride and refuse to be tortured by the nonsense of those who haven’t learned to respect the personal space of others.
