Tired of feeling like a 24/7 customer service hotline for everyone in your life? Well, it's time to break free from the chains of constant "yeses" and step into the fabulous world of setting boundaries.
As a mental health therapist and a recovering people pleaser, here are some tips I have scooped up along my own healing journey...
Tip #1 - Admit You're Not a Doormat
So, you're the person who says yes even before the question's complete? Let's change that narrative, shall we? Acknowledge that you're not a doormat.
Tip #2 - Boundary Bingo
Identify the situations that make you cringe and squirm. Think of it as a Boundary Bingo: spot the instances where you tend to sacrifice your sanity for the sake of making everyone happy.
