Don’t put up with a lot of crap.

Yes, people are doing the best they can.

But to expect you can control.

What they feel, think, or react.

Is to set yourself up for disappointment.

Set boundaries.


Are simply your lists of what’s okay and what’s not okay.

Yes, there will be people who violate your boundaries

Yes, this will require you to continue to hold those people accountable.

Nonetheless, live your integrity.

Rather than being grounded by disappointment.

Get strengthened by self-respect.

Ask for what you need.

Say no when you need to.

Say yes and mean it.
