EIGHTEEN. (57 Ways to Beat Loneliness & Depression)
Maintain Healthy Boundaries
It’s easy to think that people will like you more if you do whatever they tell you to do, but it’s quite the opposite. People don’t appreciate pushovers – they use them. And people who are pushovers always feel horrible about themselves.
To have a healthy self-image, you have to be prepared to say no sometimes. You have to learn to say NO, so that you can say YES to the things you really want to do. When you have healthy boundaries, people will respect you more, but more importantly, you will like yourself more.
Remember life is meant to be inhaled, not spit out!
