“It’s important to set good boundaries so people know how to help you.” Dan Post Senning, Emily Post Institute

“It’s important to set good boundaries so people know how to help you. They want to help. They want to participate well. It’s up to you to let them know. You recognize their good intentions. You recognize their place of care, concern and a willingness to help that this is coming from.”

“Even if it is hard for you at the moment or creating more difficulty than it’s actually helping. You don’t respond with rudeness. You set those boundaries clearly. You do remember those good intentions. That can be difficult. Particularly when you’re in a very stressful and hard time. You do your best. Those are the moments that you get to shine.”

Dan Post Senning, Emily Post Institute

"'We've all done it.' You can't be perfect. You can't not make mistakes. The fact is we all do it. Somehow that phrase for me is just reassuring. So a good nights sleep and remember no one is perfect. It is that bad feeling. The answer isn't that you never experience bad feelings. You will feel it and you will screw up."
