How to set the boundaries you have always wanted to set

If you have a boyfriend that takes you for granted, friends that barely listen to you, a boss that treats you like a slave or basically anyone else that treats you like a doormat, what you need is to set boundaries. 

No one will take you seriously if you don’t get up and say, ‘enough is enough’ once and for all. But how exactly do you go about it? Considering the kind of person you are, it is not so easy. 

1. Self-awareness

This is where it all begins. You must know yourself and become aware of your feelings – including what you like and what you don’t like. If you can tell early on the kinds of behavior and requests that don’t make you feel good about yourself, then, you will know how to handle them.

2. Be direct

Don’t mince words when someone is behaving in a way you don’t like towards you. What you should do is to address the behavior immediately and swiftly. For example, if a friend is trying to get you to cancel your plans so you can do something else together, don’t say, “I don’t think this will work out. I kinda made plans already fa.” They won’t get the hint. Instead, say, “I already made plans. I can’t cancel mine for you out of the blue.”

3. Don’t condone other people’s bad behavior

If someone is being rude to you, don’t just smile and accept it just because you want peace to reign. Call the person out. If someone does not show up for an appointment, don’t sit around waiting for an hour. Leave and go do something else or sleep at home.

4. Cut toxic people off

I know this has become a broken record but if someone is always taking you for a ride, disconnect from that person and don’t even apologize for it.

The best way to set boundaries is always remembering that you need to prioritize yourself. You are as important as everyone else.
