READ THIS 👉🏽👉🏽👉🏽 Even when it’s not easy, even when it might cost you something seemingly significant, even when you’ll face criticism, stand up for yourself today.
The truth is, by not standing up for what you want, what you deserve and what you’re worth (because you think it’ll cause conflict) you’re accepting the conflict to carry on within side you and your mental well-being and peace cannot afford that in the long-term.
Short-term pain for long term gain.
We’re really good at tricking ourselves into thinking we have too much to lose by protecting our standards, this is an illusion – losing something that was harming you, is not a loss, it’s gain.
You’ve gained peace, self-respect and happiness. If you stand up for yourself and your value, and that results in some people, jobs or partners not wanting you anymore – then be grateful that this necessary adjustment happened sooner rather than later – you’ve successfully cut ties with something that didn’t deserve you.
Over the years I’ve really learnt the art of standing up for myself, what I believe and my value, standing up for myself has also helped me have empathy for others when they stand up for themselves too… I can’t tell you how much this has changed all elements of my life, my relationships and my overall satisfaction.
Things don’t drag out unaddressed anymore and I don’t have to live with manipulators who don’t respect or appreciate me, within my circle.
You don't lose real friends, real opportunities or real relationships when you start standing up for yourself and setting clear boundaries. You lose abusers, manipulators, narcissists, control freaks, attention seekers and mental-health destroying leeches.
