Friend, you are not a door mat. Stop allowing people to clean their feet and walk all over you.

I like what Ghandi said...

"I will not allow anyone to walk through my mind with their dirty feet."

The same holds true for your heart. You have to guard your heart because everything you do flows from it. And guarding heart often times requires you teaching people how to treat you.

Givers have to set boundaries because takers rarely do. If you're giving way more than you're receiving in your relationship, friendship, etc., you're a door mat. If you're allowing the same hurtful behavior time and time again, you're a door mat.

As I've gotten older my attitude is this... I'm gonna love you big! And I'm going to allow you to be you... But if you being you hurts me, then it's time for me to reevaluate my relationship with you.
