Stand up for yourself…

Easy to say but not so easy to do.

Hard to do when others think you’ll look like a fool.

Hard to do when you feel intimidated by what others say and do.

Easy to talk yourself out of when you feel you stand alone.

Hard to forgive yourself when you don’t do what you say you’re going to do because you fear the

wrath from one or more.

When it comes down to it, there is no one who will care more than you do about your principles.

When it comes down to it, if you don’t fight for your principles, you principles aren’t worth much to you.

What makes you step away from the plate and decide not to fight for what you think is right?

FEAR of something, someone, or noone in particular but just afraid and resistant to stepping outside your

comfort zone.

What makes you step up to the plate to fight for what you believe is right?

When you’ve finally had enough and are so disgusted with the way you feel and so sick of feeling intimidated by

one or more you will No Contactthen decide to take action.

You realize that you don’t care nearly as much about what one or more think of you.

It doesn’t matter that one or more bad mouths you or has nothing to do with you.

You get to a place in your thinking where you know that what you think of you is more important.

Stand up for yourself…

Easy to say but not so easy to do.

Be proud of yourself; you’re no fool.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stand Up for You and Your Family

Saturday, July 20th, 2013

No ContactIf someone you’re close to namely a parent or other relative is in the habit of making negative remarks about you or your children be as objective as you can about whatever they say but stand up for yourself and your family.

Sometimes well meaning or maybe not so well meaning remarks are made.

A grandparent might say “Jimmy is ungrateful, he doesn’t even care that I’m here. He just ignores me.”

Jimmy  may really love having grandma come over to visit but that doesn’t necessarily mean he’s sitting next to grandma hanging onto her every word. Sometimes grandma feels slighted when there is really no reason to.

Respect for elders is important but so is respect for children young adults and the middle aged.

If you’re doing all you can to see that your children treat others with respect and you do so yourself don’t let others push you or your children around. When in the presence of difficult relatives stay calm while holding your ground.
