It's easy to get into habits or patterns in life especially when it comes to personal boundaries. Perhaps you're the one who always drives when you go out with friends or the hostess with the mostess for every candle, cookware or clothing in-home party. If you run with a bunch of bad drivers or love to pretend your home is a retail outlet, that's one thing. But it's another when you're craving some down time but simply can't say no.
And this former people-pleasing, motivational speaker is speaking the truth when I say you'll never have balance without boundaries. Read how I turned things around in an article posted here.
Remember, saying no doesn't make you a horrible, terrible, nasty person. Instead it makes you able to find the time to say yes to what's most important to you. From your former boundary-less motivational speaker.
