Does creating peace mean putting your own needs aside?
But does letting go of expectations mean we’re open to being taken advantage of and emotionally steamrolled? Is there such a thing as giving too much? Can we be both for ourselves and for others with full integrity?
This evening I’ll be discussing how to balance pursuing peace with maintaining healthy boundaries and self care. These are the teachings I’ll be drawing from at the outset:
Don’t be as slaves, who serve their master for the sake of reward. Rather, be as slaves who serve their master not for the sake of reward. And the fear of Heaven should be upon you.”
Mishna 3, Antignos of Socho
Be of the disciples of Aaron – a lover of peace, a pursuer of peace, one who loves the creatures and draws them close to Torah.”
Mishna 12, Hillel the Elder
If I am not for myself, who is for me? And if I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?”
Mishna 14, Hillel the Elder
