The difference is I’ve hardened up a bit!
By having poor boundaries (not knowing better early on), I was highly susceptible to being taken advantage of!
And, I was… several times…
Today, though… after many run-ins with toxic people and a few narcissists, I now know better!
That’s not a challenge, blogosphere… it’s just a statement that I am learning, along the way in life, which is the way life’s supposed to work! 🙂
