You are responsible for yourself. This can happen in many ways. One way is to say No to topics, instances and occurrences that others try to subscribe you to.
The bottom life is, this is your life and you owe it to yourself to set boundaries.
When you are at work, especially in today’s corporate world, desks span the entire floor, with people talking to each other, or those on the phone while cracking away on their keyboards, with not a wall in sight.
Walls keep others separate from yourself and corporations decided that without walls, workers will be more productive. I question this.
The thing you need most whether working, playing or at home, is a sense of peace and tranquility.
If you spent all your days in the same room as your entire family, – yes, all of them! – you would go bonkers.
You need boundaries – which is one of the reasons people do not carpool a lot. Your car presents itself as a boundary, keeping you separate from others.
You need to draw a line in the sand as to where and when your boundaries are invoked.
You can empower yourself by establishing boundaries and learning to be with yourself.
