Consider this quote from Cleo Wade, “Love yourself enough to walk into only the rooms and situations that show care and love for you. Love yourself enough to walk out of the rooms that harm you in any way. Love yourself enough to hold the people who harm you accountable for their words and actions. Love yourself enough to express your wants, your needs, and your desires. Love yourself enough to tell the truth. Love yourself enough to keep yourself safe. Love yourself enough to say enough is enough when enough has become enough.”

Holy Spirit, teach us to be aware of and act when enough is enough. God, let us feel your gentle, warm embrace – especially those of us in the margins. Be near us. Nudge those to action, those who You’re calling to be the physical embodiment of your mama bear hug.
