Dr. Robert A. Glover

Boundaries are a way of telling people that you have respect for yourself and that they can’t walk over you. Doing this might be difficult for some people. Maybe you’ve gone through life letting people take advantage of you. Maybe you’ve been frustrated and wonder why this keeps happening. The hard truth is: if you don’t set boundaries with people, you are letting this happen to yourself. 


Setting boundaries and telling people that you disagree with something doesn’t make you a jerk. It shows that you have respect for yourself, which will most likely make others respect you as well. Dr. Glover wants recovering nice guys to know how beneficial it is for their lives to stop being so nice to everyone and start pushing their opinions, doing what they want in their lives, and to not let people walk all over them. Doing this will help guys get to the next step in their lives.
