Limits

Hello people!
I've been going to therapy because I have social phobia, but I've also been bullied since I was little, my therapist said that people get bullied because they don't know how to put limits to other people, so we basically let them do what ever they want to do with us.
So, does anyone have any ideas on how to put limits to bullies????

From personal experience, I have realized that bullies bully those people the most who reciprocate to the bullying. For instance, when A is bullied by B, and A reciprocates by crying, or showing that he/she has been emotionally affected by B's bullying, in a way, that fuels B to continue bullying A.

If A somehow conveys to B that A is nonchalant to B's bullying, than B would stop bullying. I hope this makes sense.
