Although I've never actually used this quote in real life I think it's a good one and remind myself of it quite often. I think we all have been around people (and been those people ourselves!) for whom daily life is constant chaos of continually scrambling to make it work. For people pleasers like me it's so hard to say no when the great fear is not being liked. However, as hard as it might be I believe practicing these kind of boundaries only makes for better, more honest relationships in the long run. It takes strength to say "no" when you're expected to say "yes". It also requires knowing and respecting yourself. Tough stuff.
