"Walking by faith requires strength and foresight. Demanding respect for a dream that has not come to life yet requires confidence. Learn to love your journey."
Qutie's Connect: When you are trying to do something new you are in for a lot of surprises. You don't know what to expect, and you might overthink so much that you don't get to see things through naturally.

Know yourself, learn your boundaries.
I truly believe that people treat you how you treat yourself. Meaning that if you don't care... THEY do not care!
You have to let people know how you want to be treated from the very beginning. Which is why first impressions matter.
You don't even want your peers to get the idea that they can fawk with you and that's just truth...
Once you set your boundaries that's it. Stand by your rules until your foundation is solid and you feel comfortable releasing or adding boundaries.
What to do when your boundaries aren't being respected?
Have a point system if needed.
If someone violates one rule you might just cut back the time you spend with them.
If someone violates again after having a talk you might not see them at all.
If someone violates again you may not talk or see them at all for a certain period of time.
You get the drift. Set boundaries, Set new rules, and STOP letting people play with you! We literally do not have time for that!
