What do I do when someone crosses my boundary and they start a fight about it?

Stand your ground.

Listen to them but don’t give in and allow them to make you change your mind for their convenience.
Express why you have this boundary if it is appropriate for you do so.
Walk away. Stop explaining yourself if the person isn’t willing to listen. Recognize a brick wall behavior when you see one!
Listen to their apology. Then clarify what your boundary is so they KNOW.
Learn how to say no. Make a list of ways you can say no like “That makes me uncomfortable. I need more information and then I want time to think about it. I’ll get back to in ….. minutes when I know how I feel about it.

It’s Boundary month!  If you don’t know what your boundaries are, then how do you know when someone has crossed them?  How do you Begin to enforce your boundaries when no one knows what your boundaries are?  And why should they respect your boundaries when you clearly don’t or you keep moving the boundary line constantly?
