Separate yourself from others

Understand that your boundaries are different from others.

You can learn to be emotionally attached to others while remaining psychologically and intellectually detached. This kind of space allows for personal expression while minimizing emotional and psychological entanglement.

Know thyself

Get to know yourself as best you can. Become familiar and comfortable with your own beliefs, emotions, feelings, and ideas.

Develop the capacity to know what needs to be done for yourself.

By setting your own boundaries, you are setting your limits about who can come into your space and what you expect of others once they’re there.

When you respect yourself, you should expect that others will treat you with respect. If they don’t, that’s a clear sign not to engage.

Stay away from anyone who thinks nothing of invading your space for their own end.

It’s a waste of your time and energy to try to fix other people because they’re not interested in becoming any other way than they are.

You don’t need to feel that you owe anyone anything more than you want to give with your free and conscious heart.

If anyone invades your boundaries, be ready to walk away without fear or guilt.
