… but take no shit! Seriously, it has been a battle lately in my life. I won’t bore you with the details, but it has been a struggle. I am not sure when I issued out a challenge to heap loads of crap on me, but that’s how its been lately. And I am frustrated with it, and I am over it.
I don’t like to fight or get nasty, but I am equally tired of being walked all over. It’s tiresome. As I said earlier, I try very hard to be the duck – not for anyone else’s benefit, but because I know my own health is in direct relation to my stress levels.
Some things you can’t let slide though. What some people might tag as little errors can have a BIG impact on someone’s life, which is my problem lately.
Standing up for yourself can make you seem combative, but sitting back and taking it makes you a doormat. Neither is ideal, but at the end of the damn day (is my frustration palpable yet?), I refuse to sit back and take it. I have been through a lot in recent years, paying quite a dear price for the errors or misdeeds of others. I am human. I can only take so much. If I make a mistake, I own it, and I deal with the consequences. But frankly, I am beyond tired of paying the consequences for other peoples mistakes (while they mainly get off scot-free, further adding insult to injury).
Done and over it it. I’m not trying to do any harm, but I’m not trying to take any shit either.
