Boundaries. That's how you survive.
That's why you have a lock on your door.
You must protect your space, you must decide who can come in and who must stay out.
Freedom only have meaning when your freedom doesn't take away someone else's freedom.
People that don't understand this concept are the ones you must protect yourself from.
Being nice and accepting is hard, because it exposes you to being taken advantage of.
That's why you must be nice but also know when the time of being nice is over.
Live and let live, but don't thread on me.
Sometimes you have to remind this to yourself and to others.
No hate, no censorship, no prevarication, just boundaries.
