If someone doesn’t respect a boundary we have set, it’s up to us to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Maintaining our boundary is our job, not theirs. Yelling, freaking out, or explaining over and over to others why we need our boundary respected isn’t actually maintaining our boundary. For example: if someone keeps calling after we have asked them to stop, rather than losing our temper, we can simply block their number. Try maintaining your boundaries with kindness and grace, and discover new levels of self-esteem.
