For me, setting a boundary is the key. Being brave enough to say, “no that doesn’t work for me” in the moment. I can say that right away, before the ask becomes upsetting, before I can get angry with myself for being a “pushover”. It’s hard, it takes practice, but I’ve found the sooner I put up a boundary and the less I JADE when pressed, the less I feel I’ve been wronged or hurt or taken advantage of in the first place.

It still takes practice though.
