Episode 41:
Drawing the Line in the Sand: 5 Ways to Set Boundaries

Early in my career, I was told by someone more senior that it’s better to be respected than liked. Personally, I have found the two can co-exist, though it’s important not to let your niceness get mistaken for being a pushover. And just because you’re friendly, you can still set clear boundaries for yourself AND make sure others respect them!

In this episode, I give you some useful pointers to keep in mind when setting your boundaries, such as:

  • Setting boundaries shows others how to treat you.
  • Be clear about what your limits are.
  • Setting boundaries doesn’t make you selfish.

Setting clear boundaries is good for your physical and mental health. Don’t be afraid to assert these boundaries to others – it may not make you the most popular, but it will get you the respect you deserve.
