Setting Limits

I have often talked with people about setting limits on those who disrupt their lives. It seems a simple thing to suggest and I often wonder why people don't do it. Then I faced a situation where I had to do it. I realized that it was not easy to stop people from interfering with my own wellbeing and that it is difficult, at least for me, to stick up for myself. Am I being selfish? Am I being overly sensitive? Is this really such a big deal? Sometimes I have to remind myself that my needs are important and that if I don't stick up for them no one else will either.
