We must draw up boundaries, demarcate our space !!!

We have the choice to act, ignore or avoid while dealing with people. In our anxiety to be correct in our behaviour towards all, we bend backwards giving up our space to people who don’t deserve it. These include friends, relatives or even our own family. There may be an overbearing friend or a difficult child or even an uncompromising spouse who gives us stress by entering our space and attacking us relentlessly. The fault lies fairly and squarely on our shoulders for having allowed them to come this far. We must draw up boundaries, demarcate our space and tell them that they can come this far and no more. We must stop putting up with nonsense that stresses us out. We must be firm, stop putting up with behaviour that doesn’t suit us and before long we’ll find that such persons will change their behaviour patterns. ~Latika Teotia

Make some boundaries !!!

Make some boundaries for yourself, set limits for everyone, draw a line that no one, just NO ONE, should cross and refuse to be used. You are not a doormat to be trampled underneath. You are gentle and kind but that’s your strength; let no one mistake it for your weakness. Learn to stand up and don’t take any nonsense from anyone. ~Latika Teotia

Make boundaries !!!

Stop being used and ill-treated by allowing people to have their way. Stand up for yourself and what is right. The more you give in to other people’s whims and fancies the more they will misuse you. Let them know that your gentleness should not be mistaken for weakness and that you are strong enough to protect your rights. Make boundaries and don’t allow others to cross that line- your space belongs to you, no one has the right to violate it. You will not only be able to redeem yourself but will also be able to recognize true friends; those that leave weren’t yours in the first place. Don’t make or retain relationships at the cost of your self esteem and peace. ~Latika Teotia
