“No” is a complete sentence.” – Annie Lamott
This is a friendly reminder that you do not have to like people’s boundaries to respect them. If someone is bold enough to show or speak their boundaries then they deserve your respect.
Boundaries are your bubble around your being, they there to protect who you are as a person. Practice and normalize boundaries.
Practice speaking them but also practice respecting them, it is twofold and you cannot expect someone to respect yours if you do not respect theirs.
If you mess up, apologize. You have the ability to respect people’s boundaries, so do it.
You don’t have to respect the reason for the boundary to not respect the boundary itself.
