anger / kindness / boundaries

did some really interesting research about this lately. apparently eczema is connected with the liver not functioning at its optimum. i looked up the emotional correlation to liver – lo and behold – it is about kindness, not only to others, also to yourself. about respecting your own boundaries. something i have struggled with all my life – i have always let others override me, even though inside me something was screaming: NOOOOO ! i can actually correlate particularly bad episodes of eczema with particularly bad episodes of forcing myself to ignore my boundaries and being angry at myself for it.
i think i’m really on to something here. and guess what, the moment you are kind to yourself you can be so much more genuinely kind to others too.


I don’t know how long ago you posted this, but I think you are right. I have suffered from eczema all my life and had reached the point where steroid creams had made the skin on my hands and wrists so fragile that I could do with wearing gloves to protect myself from injury in the simplest tasks. A couple of friends in the past told me that they also suffered from this until they learned to make their boundaries more intact emotionally, since your skin is the barrier between yourself and what’s around you. Recently I read a couple of books about abusive relationships (“Why Does He Do That?” by Lundy Bancroft, and “The Verbally Abusive Relationship” by Patricia Evans), and realised that I’ve been carrying the can for other people’s behaviour all my life. I have allowed them to make me feel responsible for their wellbeing, and was always doomed to failure and wondering what I could have done better. In particular, my voice was never heard – it was played back to me distorted, and my reality consistently denied. Now that I can see and understand this pattern, and understand what was really going on, I feel quite liberated from it. I haven’t used steroid cream for a few days now and normally my skin would be rebelling, but it hasn’t. Interesting…
