It takes a lot for me to get so mad at someone that I feel the need to speak up. I have tough skin and I don’t get worked up over little things.
Something happened recently to me that turned me into a person that needed to lay it down.
I was put in a situation where someone was disrespecting me when I wasn’t there to stand up for myself and that mad me angry. I need to be able to say what’s on my mind to make sure that person knows I’m not a going to let them say or do anything that is going to hurt me.
I wasn’t always able to do this. I would let people walk all over me and I was basically a doormat. People said and did things that would hurt me and I would just let it go and not say anything.
On this journey to becoming the boss of my life I’ve become more comfortable with standing up for myself. I’m confident enough to let someone know they are being disrespectful and I make sure to listen to there reasoning. Most of the time when you tell someone how you feel they make the changes. I can’t say all of the time though because there are people out there that think they are right all the time.
Once I was able to say how I felt about this past situation I felt better. Even if the person changes there behavior or not it made me feel good to stand up for myself and I’m happy I’m at that place in my life where I’m not afraid to speak my mind.
Are you someone that stands up for yourself? Let me know in the comments.
