This one is from my friend and mentor i do not allow my husband to make fun of me in front people. When we first got married he had tease me about “small” stuff in front of family and friends. It wasn’t funny to me. I found it hurtful and offensive – and I was embarrassed! So I asked him to stop. He’s an awesome man and he did break himself of the habit (he grew up in a family with lots of teasing, so it was normal to him). I had to set my boundary and firmly remind him of it a few times before he really got it.”
When we set boundaries we let our partner know what we want what we are comfortable with and how far stretched we are.
