When to Set a Boundary with a Difficult Loved One

Do you know when it the best time to bring up the conversation around your boundaries not being respected? When the relationship is important and things are not going well, we might be waiting for that perfect opportunity to bring up our concerns. Some of us are great at procrastinating this important dialogue. Then again, some of us chose an inappropriate time to bring this up and it can backfire.

In this short video, I touch on important elements to keep in mind when discussing boundaries with a loved one who is more difficult than most.
