Hi--I've been trying to work on setting boundries and I could use some advice. I tend to say "yes" too often when people make request of me and then get resentful when it becomes too much. I am aware that I am teaching people how to treat me, but sometimes it's hard to decide when I am being reasonable or if I'm "just in a mood". Has anyone else had this problem and what methods could I try to be more assertive before I get angry?
