"Saying no is a right we all have. Use it."
~ Anne Lamott ~
Setting boundaries is our responsibility. No one else will set them for us, and the world will happily take advantage of our time, love, money, and good intentions as far as we will let them. But that's up to us.
We have the power to say, "No," and, "Enough!" and to walk away. And doing so is our responsibility. Ultimately, it's our job, and ours alone, to protect ourselves from being over-run.
I am assertive and courageous, and I set personal boundaries with ease.
