People assume this statement implies one should tell the world from the mountain top “I’m not going to take it anymore!” and go down the list of people they believe have wronged them. Uh…..Sorry to disappoint you, but that’s not where I’m going with this spill my friend.
So, take a deep breath, collect yourself, and exhale. Ah!
Now, standing up for yourself simply means “going toe-to-toe with your own negative thoughts,” not anyone else. Why? Because, the conversation within usually speaks the loudest, most often, and always out of fear and we buy into it.
If you want to improve, the sermon you preach today will be the one you give to yourself! Yes!!! Then, everyone else will take a cue on what is acceptable for you based on how you treat yourself. Hmmmm…. It always starts within.
Ah! Be light, be love, be present and show up for yourself! Peace
