Expressing some deep-seated emotions can finally bring relief to a frustrating situation. Youâre no longer willing to wait hand and foot on a family member who's been especially demanding lately. By drawing some firm boundaries, youâll have more time for activities that support your own life and wellness. You may even be pleasantly surprised when other relatives congratulate you for standing up to this individual; you aren't the only one who has been adversely affected by their behavior. Don't let one petulant person run the show. Your family is a democracy and everyone's feelings matter. Self-discipline isn’t easy, especially now, when so many different ideas and opportunities are tempting you to scatter your energies. Think of these temptations as tests of your willpower. There’s a direct connection between refusing something you know isn’t good for you, and welcoming something that is good for you. You know the things to avoid, so avoid them. This may require a last-minute revision of your plans.
