Are you one of those people who has a hard time saying “no” to others?
Do you allow other people to speak or act disrespectfully to you?
We teach others how we want to be treated. If you don’t speak up and take care of yourself, you are showing the other person that their bad behavior is okay. You are not helping them by enabling them. You are adding to the problem.
I have found over the years that most people don’t understand what healthy boundaries are or how to communicate them to others.
A good note to remember is: If it’s not right for me, it’s not right for anyone else either!
To communicate your boundaries in a healthy way, stick with talking about what you are feeling and what you want. Keep it simple.
Saying “no” clearly and responsibly can be the most loving thing you can do to support the people around you and yourself.
I guarantee the rewards are a win/win for everyone.
Check out Chapter 12 in my book, Ride the Emotional Wave, to learn more about healthy boundaries and how to create the kind of loving relationships you want.
