Don’t give your power away

Anytime you don’t set healthy emotional and physical boundaries for yourself, you risk giving away your power to other people.

Perhaps you don’t dare say no when your neighbour asks for a favor

Or maybe you dread receiving a phone call from a friend who constantly complains, but you continue to pick up on the first ring.

Each time you avoid to say no to something you don’t really want, you give away your power.

If you don’t make any attempts to get your needs met, you will give people permission to take things away from you.

A lack of emotional boundaries can equally be problematic. If you don’t like the way someone treats you, yet you dont stand up for yourself, you give that person power over yourself
