I’ve had relationships in my former life where I didn’t stand up for myself or speak my mind. A lot of it was out of low self-esteem, I didn’t know who I was, where I wanted to be in my life, or what my opinion was in, anything really. As I grew out of that habit and realized I was enough for myself when I stated how I felt or didn’t submit to what they said they would get angry or just leave me together. At first, I was nervous but the more and more I began to speak my mind and tell others I was uncomfortable with what they were doing I started losing people. Setting boundaries are needed to keep us at peace and keep our mind happy. There is no need to be afraid to do it since its healthy. Don’t be afraid to say no and try to do it in a healthy way, if it makes others upset they’re probably people you don’t need and let the relationship end where it may. Don’t let the people pleasure in you forget about yourself. You are worthy of respect.
