Stand up for yourself

Is someone pushing you around? At work? At home? Do you constantly feel a stream of mistreatment? Have you decided that you just have to deal with it at this point?


I’m not sure what you are planning to do, but stop for a minute and think about what your actions could lead to. Will you end up alone? Will you be any better off? It’s likely that whoever is telling you that you are not worth or worthy is not even worth your time. It’s time to think about yourself. No, not about being selfish. It’s about knowing your own limits and setting restrictions for yourself. Being able to stand on your own two feet. Independence. It’s what so many people want, but few are able to achieve because of the fear (of needing someone after all).

What do you need to do now? Take a slow and steady step back and think about what drove you to this moment. Was it the words that someone said or was it the gestures? Replay in your mind how that moment made you feel. Was it good, was it bad? No need to critically analyze if it will only get you feeling sad, but understand that you don’t have to feel like everything is your fault.

So speak up. Shout in the void. I get that its hard to do, but you need to try so that you at least know that you did as much. You’ll never regret trying to stand up for your rights. Trying to stand up for yourself in a world that tries to shut you out or shut you down. You deserve respect and love.

You know what you want, how about what you need? In this moment?
