My Girlfriend Changed the Way I Interact with People

and Taught Me About Setting Healthy Boundaries

One can sometimes find themselves in thorny situations participating in certain volunteer work/help exchanges if they don’t know how to set boundaries.
The view from the bus gave us plenty of time to ponder.

“Think of it this way; when we make friends, it’s like we’re giving out an imaginary punch card. And there are only so many times our friends can punch in the card until either the card is full of holes or completely disintegrated!”

“Think of it this way; whether we realize it or not, all of us are like a hotel. We can only accommodate people for so long until either their departure date arrives or they have to be kicked out because they’re not respecting the rules of the property! We can only accommodate people to a certain degree until it starts becoming unreasonable and bad for business.”
