I am a firm believer in sticking up for yourself and not allowing others to walk all over you. I’ve had to learn to cool my jets because sometimes I am a little too enthusiastic when it comes to standing up for myself.
I have gone through a lot in my life and I know exactly what it means to be abused and now I have learned to simply not stand for letting people tear me down.
I think it is extremely important that we all realize that we are worthy, loved, and deserving of respect. We are valuable and nothing should hinder is from speaking up when are not treated the way we deserve. I’m not saying you need to have a hissy fit if someone does disrespect you because there is a calm way to approach people. Why would you yell at someone for pushing you around? Whether you like it not they deserve your respect too.
I say this because I mentioned that I am leaving Barnes & Noble yesterday and I agreed to explain why. I have nothing bad to say about the company or have any ill feelings. Nor am I leaving on bad terms but I do not think it is the best environment for me to be working in.
Unfortunately that is all I can legally say on a blog but I thought it would be a good to write about the respect we all deserve. Because sometimes we need a reminder.
