The more you increase your language around whats happening in the situation, the better you will be at recognizing when someone is trying to set boundaries over your boundaries. Theyre really trying to say, Hey, I dont want you to talk to me about this thing and this is how Im going to get you to stop.”” [8:00]


You cant make a person respect your boundary, you can only make a request. So you can say, This is what I need, I would really like, but you cant change another persons behavior…” [13:03]


The person that I have to please the most is me. It doesnt mean that what I need or what I want is more important than anyone else, but I certainly believe in self-care first because I cannot care for anyone or anything before I care for myself. [31:20]
