Today’s Quotes: Set healthy boundaries!

“Your personal boundaries protect the inner core of your identity and your right to choices.”
– Gerard Manley Hopkins
“Whatever you are willing to put up with, is exactly what you will have.”
“You change for two reasons: Either you learn enough that you want to, or you’ve been hurt enough that you have to.” 

    Please tell me more about setting boundaries….thanks!
