SM series Step 13

A bit more about saying “no.” I didn’t really understand what “no” actually meant. Saying “no” is about setting a healthy boundary. I didn’t understand because “boundaries” were meaningless to me. I had to learn them. Step 13 : Create healthy boundaries. I confess that my first attempts at setting boundaries failed. I made them too broad, too flexible, too all encompassing, too strict. Practice is the only way. Sorry. Start small. A silly one I find useful in re-enforcing I’m capable of saying “no” is answering robocalls. Really. I say “no” and hang up. If it’s a real person, I say “no” and tell them to take the number off their list. Healthy boundaries are good.
