A lovely reminder about the importance of boundaries, set in an effort of self-love:
“Love yourself enough to set boundaries.
Your time and energy are precious. You get to choose how to use it.
You teach people how to treat you by deciding
what you will and won’t accept.” – Anna Taylor
I often remark to people that “sometimes we need to teach people how to treat us.” This begins and ends with boundaries, both with ourselves (it is okay to say no) and to others (when you let them know how you feel about a behaviour or choice they are making in regards to the relationship.) The need for boundaries comes out of an inner desire to feel appreciated and respected – that process will work best when we give it to ourselves first. 🙂
