If something happens and your feelings get hurt or you don’t like the way that someone has treated you, it’s important to do something about it.
It’s easy to get into the habit of sheepishly speaking up then cowering and retreating when the other person shuts you down.
When this happens, the other person learns that they can easily over step your boundary and essentially disrespect you.
And so it continues on and on until you change the way you respond.
You have to back yourself, speak up for the things you’re not okay with and make it clear that you aren’t willing to accept certain things.
It may sound simple for some but for others the idea that they don’t have to just accept being treated poorly is kinda revolutionary.
