The more chances you give someone the less respect they’ll start to have for you. They’ll begin to ignore the standards that you’ve set because they’ll know another chance will always be given. They’re not afraid to lose you because they know no matter what you won’t walk away. They get comfortable with depending on your forgiveness. Never let a person get comfortable disrespecting you.

    I agree. When i always forgive them, they ignore me. When i give them more and more chance, they continue hurting my heart.Finally, i go out of his life and i forget him, forgive him. I won’t regret for everything i do. Now, there is one stand by me, help me get over difficulties.

      Hi Gigi, I’ve never been in your exact position, but I feel your pain in your words and feel compelled to say something.
      Do you have people in your life that will stand by you and help you to stay strong and firm with your son? Talk with them, tell them what you are Going To Do! Ask for their help.
      These people should be With you when you:
      Talk to your son, calmly but firmly. No yelling because it will put him on the defensive.
      Tell him that as of right now, you Will Not do and/or tolerate whatever it is that he’s doing to hurt you. Write these things down beforehand, make a list-and have it with you.
      And Gigi? Continue to look to God for help, strength, guidance. God Bless, I hope that this helps even if just a little bit! 🙂

    If your partner is disrespectful to you, it’s never your fault, run away. In a normal (and good!) relationship, there’s no need to stand your ground. I know, I’ve been in both places. And I’m so happy now 🙂

    At almost 40 years old, I am only beginning to understand the concept of boundaries. Starting with discovering I had none at all. Just knowing that I need them does not help me to have them honoured. Setting them is a challenge. Letting people know about them is a challenge. But harder than all of that is respecting them myself and teaching others to do the same.

    How I treat myself, is how I teach others to treat me. When my boundaries are crossed, it is solely my responsibility to address the breach, and reinforce the boundary so that it can not be crossed again. If I just keep letting people step over the broken spot in my boundary, who’s to blame but me?

    The worst is when it’s your own family. At 67 I am weary of being used emotionally and financially and left them on their own. The peace is priceless.

    Wow, I see others have had the same problems as I have when it comes to our children. I was a single parent, no help from anyone, not even their father. I worked three jobs most of my life to give them all I could. I was fortunate in that I had tremendous employers while raising them and I succeeded in many aspects. My sons cleaned me out but I let them and when the tables turned they had selective memories and would not repay any loans I provided. Life goes on but relationships take a beating.

    Been going through this and now when I take the final stand she is now pregnant. Faced with many emotions I am doing right by my daughter to be a part of her miracle of life. I will be tough to welcome her to Vida.
