  • Clearly communicate your boundaries to family members in a calm and respectful manner.
  • Set aside dedicated time to discuss boundaries and expectations with family members, emphasizing the importance of mutual respect and understanding.

  • Communicate your boundaries with friends in a non-confrontational and supportive manner, focusing on mutual respect and understanding.
  • Set boundaries around social activities, communication frequency, and personal space, making it clear what you are comfortable with and what crosses the line.
