I saw a quote this morning and wondered if it might resonate?
“Pay attention when people react with anger and hostility to your boundaries.
You have found the edge where their respect for you ends.”
Does anyone in your life fit this description?
If so, do you need to set firmer boundaries or walk away?
What would be your most productive course of action?
What is your most desired outcome? Does walking away or firmer boundaries fulfill your outcome? Or some other course of action?
Do you do this to anyone else?
If so, what do you think is causing that?
Many people dealing with addiction have problems setting and holding boundaries, yet it is critical for good physical and mental health not to mention happiness. If you are having challenges with boundaries, please consider talking to a mentor or clinician right away to get support.
