Day 167 of 365 'What Would Someone Who Loves Themselves Do?
I made a list in all the ways I am manipulated by family so I would recognize them more readily in the moment to stand up for myself. This is definitely going to be a new muscle to strengthen. I'm very apt to avoiding conflict, but I'm over being disrespected, especially as if it's second nature.
I had to leave home and have no contact with my family for years before I felt strong enough to be my own person and feel I could stand up for myself! Not a recommendation, just an observation. Power to the people, power to the person!
