3) Set Boundaries
If you find yourself in a relationship with someone who has chosen you as their proverbial punching bag, you need to set boundaries. They need to realize you are not the source of their troubles and therefore should not be the brunt of them. By telling the person directly they are being disrespectful towards you, and you will not allow them to speak to you that way, you are putting limits on their control. Wait until there is a calm moment when they will hear what you say. If they are agitated, chances are they won’t hear or absorb your words. If you cannot find that calm moment, simply remove yourself from their presence and let them go calm down somewhere else. Oftentimes, the agitated person is taking something out on you that has nothing to do with you. Give them a “time out” to think about that!
