She was working on learning how to set a strong boundary. She wanted to be a woman of her word. Yes means yes and no means no. – Queenisms™
We have both resigned from the People Pleasing Club. We discovered that learning to set a strong boundary was easier than we thought. At first it was uncomfortable to say, “No,” to the people we had always said yes to. But we decided we would rather be a bit uncomfortable than live a life full of resentment because we were always agreeing to do things we really didn’t have the time for. We are just very clear and honest when we set a boundary. We have learned to say, “I’m sorry, I’m going to have to say ‘No” this time. I wish I could help you but I can’t.” We discovered that people appreciate the honesty and learn to respect our word. How are you at setting boundaries?
