Set Boundaries for Yourself as a Business Owner

For many persons a “boundary” promotes division.

Your mental health screams otherwise. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Many persons suffer in silence with pent up anger, frustration, resentment, you name it... all because of the impact that others have made, most times, unknowingly. They are simply dwelling in the space we left for them. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

✨It has to stop if you truly care about preserving your mental health. This can be done by creating an environment that facilitates mutual respect based on the role you both play in that circumstance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

So, guess what, the responsibility falls on you to either:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

📍Manage those expectations from the beginning (with a contract, a direct conversation, email or whatever allows you to effectively communicate your stance), OR⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

📍Find a way to have the conversation if you are already feeling affected so as to avoid you dwelling in that ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

And no, it ain’t simple. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

My own journey with this has been a winding road lol. I was so afraid of stepping on toes, not being liked or making others feel like I’m not “available”. But, there came a point where I felt TIRED. ⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

😶 Personally, I used to be in several environments and situations that were straight up toxic, whether it was a 9-5, certain relationships, certain communities, you name it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

😐 With my business, I learned the hard way that even though you wanna go all out for your clients, you still have to respect yourself & count the cost; for your own business, heart, mind, family.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⚡️So, I got to a point where it was either “them” or me. ⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

I would either keep exposing myself to the things affecting me or establish control of my space so that I can function, heal and flourish like I truly deserve to & SERVE even better because people are receiving a mentally focused & relaxed me. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Do you believe you deserve it too? 🧐
