Become More Intentional by Setting Boundaries

Privacy is important to most people. Having rules and limits on how you interact with others makes it easier to not overextend your abilities or make a nuisance of yourself.

It’s important that you cultivate friendships and relationships with people who want to treat you well and expect the same kind of treatment in return.
