Laura, thanks for your kind words. As you said, boundaries are fuzzy. I found it stressful to work with clients who were attempting suicide and I wished boundaries were more straightforward. Middleton mentions in trauma recovery to “manage your emotions” and “keep yourself open…” among other things. It’s good to remind ourselves that we are human beings with feelings and emotions.We are not robots.
We are not God, as Rick says. It’s good to be aware of my limitations, no matter how qualified or how experienced I am. Having done the best I can, I simply turn to God.
