How do you stop others taking advantage of you? The external world is a reflection of the internal landscape. When you’re overriding your own true nature to fit in with the plans or dreams of others, or rather to the extent you do that, you automatically invite others to take advantage of you. The extent to which you’re living your life in accord with your truth (your true nature), is the extent to which others respect your space, your will and your way.
Examine yourself. Access your true nature. Through that, remember what you want and where you’re going.
Remembering, you naturally reconnect with your inner power base. Reconnecting, your protective forcefield is spontaneously reinstated. Reinstated, others instinctively know not to try and take advantage.
It's subtle and it works.
Boundary clarity to you.
