Dodinsky Quote:

Be there for others but never leave yourself behind Dodinsky Quote

What’s Up With Me?

Just a heads up. that I’m probably not going to be very active this week. I’ve already been to three doctors but I have four more to go. I said I had to go to six this month but turns out I have to go to seven because I need to see my optician too.

Now, back to the Dodinsky quote. I think many of us are so busy taking care of those around us that we forget about ourselves. I know I can be like that and it’s caused me nothing but problems. So recently, with the help of my therapist, I have started setting more boundaries. It’s not easy and I’m only just gingerly dipping my toes but I’m already feel better. I’m a lot less anxious now that I know my boundaries and know I’ll stand firm.

Self-care is something that is more popular these days than it was before. So unfortunately, it’s something I’m just getting into. But let me tell you, sometimes you have to be selfish and put yourself first. It’s actually best for ourselves and those around us. It’s okay for us to prioritise our needs too. And it’s totally okay to say no when you need to. If someone doesn’t like it that’s their problem.

Do you set strong boundaries? Or is it something you’re working on like me? Did you enjoy this Dodinsky quote? Let me know in the comments below because I would love to hear your thoughts. Or simply stop by and say hi!

  1. I like the quote and I do struggle with setting boundaries.

    I’m usually not the one helping people, but the one being helped and sometimes I even have to set boundaries for that or I end up accidentally sucking the life out of the person and they cut ties with me.

    1. That makes sense, I think boundaries work both ways and it’s important to make sure we set boundaries even if we’re the ones being helped.

  2. Great post and quote, thank you, Pooja. It’s really good that you are seeing a benefit from the boundaries you are setting now. I’ve had similar experiences recently when being more intentional about setting, and enforcing, boundaries. Good luck with your doctors’ appointments!

  3. Hey Pooja, I think I have my boundaries in place like 24/7, you have to respect yourself so that others could respect you as well. It’s a number one rule for a teacher, or anyone really. I think the older you get the more obvious it becomes. I need to go see my doctor as well just to hear, you are as healthy as a bull, go home, what are you doing here? Anyways, I hope you get to hear the same, let me know how it goes. Peace out!

    1. That’s really great. I agree, I think we always have to have boundaries in place and that’s what I’m working on right now.
      Hope so too and good luck with your appointment!

  4. It is not easy for me to set boundaries, but I am working on it. No one seems to like when I do, but I just have to put my foot down. An empty pitcher cannot fill others!

    1. It’s tough setting boundaries mainly because those around us have an issue with it as they’re so used to us not having boundaries. But stick with it, you deserve to have proper boundaries.

  5. Great quote. Boundary issues have been coming up for me lately and I am now getting passive aggressiveness as a result of enforcing boundaries. Feels like grade two some days, lol.
    Good luck with your doctor appointments.
    Hope you are back to 100 percent soon.

  6. Like you I learned recently to set firm boundaries. I have a tendency to want to help others and have over extended myself in the past. Now I resist the temptation, which is hard for me.
    Being an empath is challenging, I feel peoples pain and want to give them support and advice, you’ll see that from my posts.

    1. I’m like that too and I think for people like us setting boundaries is very important. When you’re more sensitive and feel more empathy/sympathy than others it’s tough to see them in pain and not be able to help them.

  7. I’m happy that your looking after your health Pooja G.
    Great quote. Setting boundaries will aggravate a few people at first, but eventually they will respect it. If they don’t, that’s their problem. You gotta do what’s best for you. 💙
    Wishing you the best of health. 🙏

    1. Thanks so much. I agree, some people won’t take it well but if they can’t respect you and your boundaries they aren’t worth having around.

  8. I like a few of Dodinsky’s quotes but my favorite has been enlightening and reminds me at necessary times to maintain my boundaries from toxic people that will never change.

    “When faced with senseless drama, spiteful criticisms and misguided opinions, walking away is the best way to stand up for yourself. To respond with anger is an endorsement of their attitude.”
    ― Dodinsky

  9. I like Dodinsky’s quote because it reminds us to do one of the most important things in life.

    Yes I do love setting boundaries because that is the easiest way I can protect myself.

  10. I hope your doctors appointments go well, Pooja. WordPress is at it again and I had to resubscribe to your blog among others. Argh! Take care. ❤️

          1. It is annoying, however, many bloggers are aware it is a WordPress glitch since it is reoccurring. A few years back, it was worse. Seems when WordPress updates, things go wonky.

  11. agreed, self care is important. We can forget sometimes, as are trying to get other things done. But if we dont take care of ourselves, then we wont be able to do the things that are necessary. And eventually setting boundaries wont seem like a challenging task, the more you practice doing so.

  12. It’s so important to prioritize our own well-being and set boundaries. Self-care is a journey. Taking care of yourself allows you to be there for others in a healthier way.

  13. Sometimes we are so good to others that we completely neglect ourselves, how curious. The most logical thing would be to be well to be able to help others.
    I know that you will soon overcome everything, you have to continue step by step.

    Hugs from a distance, dear friend. 🤗🤗🤗

    1. Yes, I think that happens a lot. We put everyone but ourselves first but the truth is sometimes we have to prioritise ourselves too.
      Thanks so much 🤗🤗

      1. Yeah. It’s similar to trying to help someone who is drowning. If you try to help a drowning person, but haven’t secured yourself first, they might drown you along with them.

        It’s interesting how we understand the idea of boundaries and self-preservation in some situations but we forget it in others.

  14. I’m definitely still learning to get good at setting boundaries but this week was a lesson for me that I need to. I agreed to do something for someone on my blog and I’m now going to have to turn them down. I’m being stretched in all directions and I have to prioritise me. The first step is just realising this though so hats off to you for being so self-aware.

    1. Thanks so much. Absolutely, we need to set boundaries sometimes. It’s for the best for everyone and stretching ourselves thin doesn’t help anyone.

  15. I hope everything goes well with your doctors’ appointments. It’s important to prioritize your health and take care of yourself. Setting boundaries can be challenging but it’s a necessary step towards self-care. It’s great that you’re working on it with the help of your therapist.

  16. I love that your two options are “do you set strong boundaries” and “or is it something you’re working on”. C) None of the above. 😅

    Kidding, I’m actually working on it with my therapist for the past couple months. I feel like we do very little “work” on it though.

    1. You either have boundaries or you’re working on it, there’s no in between! 😜
      That’s great. Working on it in therapy too and yeah progress is slow sometimes but I’m trying to work on it on my own too and actively setting boundaries.
