Now, I realized that the reason why I kept receiving insults from these small minds is because I did not draw the limit from the beginning. I did not set the personal boundaries limit from the very beginning. I came smiling at everyone, I came saying yes to almost everyone all because I never wanted to offend anyone. Little did I know I was gradually calling for insult. These were the words of xxxxxx ; a lady that was so used by her colleagues.
She was employed as a secretary but she found herself always smiling at everyone even to the point of taking little orders from her colleagues and Boss. She found herself saying yes to every given task and even working far beyond the stipulated time. It was not long before she started receiving orders and “here and there” insults from even her junior colleagues. This made her so unhappy. Really, I need help.; she said to herself.
One day, she found herself exchanging words with a junior colleague and as a result, both of them were suspended for two weeks. On resumption, she realized how much respect she had lost because as she was about entering the company, the gate man said to her; so you are back; I hope you will not exchange words with another person again; orderwise, you would be sacked this time around.
Those words hit her really good because It dawned on her that she attracted all that she’s getting from people especially from her colleagues because she never set Personal boundaries from the very beginning. She gave her colleagues the impetus to talk to her and use her the way they like.
