WHAT KIND OF BOUNDARIES DO YOU NEED?
How often have you said ‘yes’ when you meant to say ‘no’? Do you let people take advantage of your good manners and helpfulness? Is the world full of takers instead of givers? You are, of course, doing the right thing, and still, people are taking advantage of you. These people don’t know where to stop, don’t they?
As much as you want to blame this on other people, others taking advantage of you stems from you. Since no one told you how to set healthy boundaries, how would you know how to protect yourself?
YOU WILL BE KIND AND POLITE
It is necessary and sometimes difficult to set healthy boundaries. First, you must know that setting boundaries DO NOT equal being assertive and rude, and there is a polite, ethical and moral way to set boundaries.
The primary goal of boundaries is to protect your self-worth. When you preserve your self-worth, you feel balanced and strong, and Self-love comes from balanced and robust behaviors.
