This post was inspired by true events as all of my posts are. There is a fine line between holding your tongue because it is better to do so and standing up for yourself because nobody else will. If you have worked at a job for many, many years and are afraid to speak up for yourself, what is the point? I know people on both sides of this. Some think staying quiet is the only way because if you speak up, you could lose your job. Some think being as loud as possible about what is wrong is the best way to handle things. It’s the same way in relationships. Things bother you, and you let them add up. Maybe years worth of things until one day you realize you can’t take it anymore. Thankfully, I ummm, tell people like I see it. You only have one life. Why not live it truthfully?
“Disciplining yourself to do what you know is right and important, although difficult, is the highroad to pride, self-esteem, and personal satisfaction.” ~Margaret Thatcher
