Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ. If anyone thinks they are something when they are not, they deceive themselves. Each one should test their own actions. Then they can take pride in themselves alone, without comparing themselves to someone else, for each one should carry their own load.
Boundaries are a necessary ingredient to healthy, functional friendships. One might even call boundaries Godly. The Bible says to carry each other's burdens - but we need to carry our own load, sister. God wants us to help and love one another, but he wants us to be responsible for our own lives. And when we're in need, he wants us to go to Him first. Not only does carrying other people's load eventually wear us down into the ground, but it also inhibits the other person's growth. We step in as if we're God and take it all upon ourselves. No one benefits when one person is taking on everybody's problems. Instead of one person being a hot mess not everybody's a hot mess! God can't bring us to another level if we're not even pushing our own wheelbarrow - or too busy pushing everybody else's. Get yo'self some boundaries, girl!
