How do we expect anyone else to respect our boundaries if we don’t respect ourselves?!
Self-love and self-respect are the first step in learning to set healthy and loving boundaries with others. The second thing we must do is stop pretending that everything is all right, when it’s not! The third thing is to tell the truth and not minimize our feelings. The fourth thing is to stay connected and boldly face our conflicts and problems. The fifth is to follow-through with consequences of those who cross our boundaries. The sixth is to take responsibility for our own lives. The seventh is to stay humble and recognize no one is perfect… we all will mess up from time to time.
These seven things help us learn to set those boundaries that define us and teach others how we want to be… and expect to be treated in this life.
Bravely stand firm while setting those boundaries and don’t back down or waiver! Respect yourself enough to set boundaries and do all the things it takes so that you can enjoy the life that you deserve! ❤️Ann
