Try it

Here are some words you can say to tell someone about your boundaries:

  1. Thank you for calling me. I am very busy during the day, so I don’t usually answer my phone. I will call you back after work.
  2. I have a personal rule that I am not Facebook friends with people from work.
  3. I would feel more comfortable if you didn’t try to eat off my plate.
  4. Please don’t stand so close to me.
  5. I need some time and space.
  6. Let me think about it. I’ll get back to you later.

Can you think of your own boundaries and come up with a script or words of your own that help you tell others about your boundaries?
