Never Apologize For Setting Boundaries
We should never apologize for setting boundaries. Boundaries are put in place for a reason. You will come to realize just how people feel about you when you set boundaries. It is perfectly okay to let others know what your expectations are.
Setting clear boundaries helps ensure we receive the respect we desire and deserve. Our boundaries are a reflection of what we feel about ourselves. Our boundaries exemplify what we believe our worth is. By setting boundaries, we are letting others know both our and their limitations.
We set boundaries for a reason. If we begin to waver in the boundaries we set, it may be time to reevaluate those boundaries. If necessary, strengthen those boundaries and your stance. Having minimal boundaries in place and allowing others to guilt us into minimizing our boundaries opens the door for them to believe it’s okay to treat us any way they see fit.
Set your boundaries and remain consistent. The boundaries we set need to be clear and strong. Modify your boundaries as needed, but never compromise just for the sake of the need to be accepted. Never let anyone manipulate you. Know your worth and accept nothing less.
