Obviously it does not matter what boundaries we set and precautions we take, other people are not always going to follow our lead. It’s up to us to set, and keep, those boundaries, no matter how difficult it might be at the time. I would say it’s vital to our health to do this. So how do we set the right boundaries?
Loyalty is a good thing. But we do owe it to ourselves to keep the boundaries we have set for both ourselves and our clients, otherwise the client will learn that it’s okay to call at all hours of the night and expect us to answer.
