“A lack of boundaries invites a lack of respect.” – Ritu Ghatourey

For those who would rather listen than read, I’ve got you covered. Listen to my latest article by clicking above!

You must set boundaries, without boundaries people will walk all over you, disrespect you, try you constantly and keep pushing and pushing until you finally fall overboard – a victim of your own inability to fight for self.

Why would you tolerate disrespect? How do you feel about yourself? Do you feel worthy? Do you feel less than ? Do you feel attractive ? Do you feel undesirable? How you allow others to treat you is a direct reflection of how you feel about yourself.

One more time for those in the back. 

How you allow others to treat you is a direct reflection of how you feel about yourself. 

If you let people treat you like s***, it’s because you feel like s***. If you require people to treat you with dignity, you feel worthy of such respect. Think of your favorite idol, someone that inspires you, someone you look up to.

For example, my favorite idol, as you all may know, is none other than the super ikonic, business aficionado and hip-hop’s first billionaire Mr. Shawn Carter, better known as Jay-Z. Do you think that Jay-Z tolerates disrespect? He’s set a high standard for himself, thus, to be honest I’m sure , of course, at this point no one would dare to disrespect Jay-Z. Do you know why? Because he sets boundaries and carries an aura that demands respect. What’s your aura like ? It’s not about just giving off a vibe of arrogance or superiority because deep down those supercilious attitudes are only a further indication of the insecurity you have within self. You demand respect by being the respect it is that you are requesting.

You demand respect by being the respect it is that you are requesting. 

Setting healthy and loving boundaries is essential for all sectors of relationships. What you allow is what will continue. I believe in the animal kingdom there’s a natural order of respect but, in humanity there’s only what you allow. Some animal life enthusiasts may disagree but I don’t give a flying jive J-K-L-M-N-O-P. Stop allowing people to use you as a doormat.

Set boundaries and stick to those boundaries. If you flake on your own boundaries they become irrelevant. You got this. Carry yourself with an aura that demands respect and accept nothing less.
