Roy Murray asked 1 month ago

I have a hard time saying "no" to people, even when I really don't want to do something. As a result, I often end up feeling overwhelmed and taken advantage of. I know I need to start setting some boundaries, but I'm not sure how. Can you help me?

It can be really tough to set boundaries, but it's important to do what's best for you. One way to start is by getting clear on what your limits are. What are you comfortable with? What are you not comfortable with? Once you have a better idea of your own boundaries, it'll be easier to start communicating them to others. It's also important to be firm and assertive when you're setting boundaries - don't let anyone pressure you into doing something you don't want to do. And finally, don't forget that you can always change your boundaries if they're not working for you. Just because you set a boundary doesn't mean it's set in stone - so don't be afraid to adjust as needed.
