This week’s photo challenge invites us to explore the concept of Boundaries. In the past year I violated the personal boundaries of someone I love very much. Her reaction to my mistake turned into an equally egregious transgression of my boundaries. In order to restore balance in my life, I reevaluated and redefined my own boundaries — all invisible on the surface — but there nonetheless.
Counselors and therapists often use metaphors to describe mental, emotional and spiritual concepts that are easier to understand using a physical or symbolic representation. Peeling off layers of an onion, for example, is often used to explain the process of self-discovery required to find inner strength and peace.
In my posts this week I will explore the topic of emotional boundaries. Since it is an invisible periphery, the images used are meant to provide a metaphorical glimpse under the surface of being.
