Have you ever set a boundary and got a really negative reaction back?
It’s not nice, it can make us want to go back to people pleasing even if it keeps us small.
When you start to set boundaries and be your true authentic self, some people won’t like it.
Especially if your boundary means saying no to them.
Some people will judge you harshly, get offended or jealous. They might assume things about you that aren’t true.
They might say something harsh to your face or behind your back. And it might hurt.
But their reaction isn’t about you.
You can’t control their reaction, their beliefs or their thoughts.
You can only control your own actions and responses.
Sometimes you need to let people be wrong about you.
And just do what you need to do to grow.
Your own growth is the only part that’s about you.
