What if they get mad at me?
If people get mad at you for having boundaries, it means they’ve benefited from you not having any. You don’t need to keep people happy every minute of the day. You are not responsible for other people’s feelings. If someone has a reaction to your boundary, you didn’t ‘make’ them react. You chose to voice your feelings and needs. They chose their reaction. You cannot control what other people do.
