“You’re not making or setting a boundary for every individual person that you’re bumping up against. You decide what is the boundary for my life, based on who I am, and anytime anyone walks up to the counter and asks for something or does something, I experience it based on the boundary I’ve set for myself. So then it feels even less personal as we’re getting into with other people. Because we’re saying it’s not about you, this isn’t personal. This is my boundary, for me.”
– Devi Brown
