stephen, this where establishing healthy boundaries comes into play. Knowing what you (not you personally, but anyone) stand for (as well as what you don’t) and where you end and someone else begins is essential. Without that, people open themselves up to being subject to the whims of public opinion.

“Nope, not today”—I love that.
