Setting healthy boundaries is necessary to protect us from being hurt or abused. Anyone that runs ramshackle all over you and doesn't care about hurting you is crossing boundaries. In life there are those that live to cause others grief and pain. Do not allow this toxicity. You must set boundaries and consequences for those who choose to mistreat you.
We violate this rule all the time. We worry so much about being liked, that we forget to create healthy boundaries. As Brene Brown says " Im not as sweet as I used to be, but Im far more loving". We are available to love and care more deeply for others in the long run, when we first care for ourselves. Love you all.
Setting Boundaries Doesn't Make Me "Mean"...I Can Set Limits And Expectations For My Life And Still Be "Nice." Considering Your Wishes Doesn't Mean I Have To Do What You Think I Should Do. My Feelings And Thoughts Are Part Of The Decision. And If You Don't Like It, That Belongs To You.
