5 Great Reasons to Stand Up For Yourself: Life Hacks
Aug 8 16
Stand Up for Yourself – to defend or support a particular idea or a person who is being criticized or attacked
In this episode, I discuss five reasons to stand up for yourself to defend your ideas, rights, & to gain the respect of others, in this podcast episode. Although in the past, I would usually clap-back hard, my methods were not always as constructive as I would like. These were my young and immature days, where I felt everything was mostly “dog-eat-dog”, ready and willingly taking people out verbally (and sometimes physically) just to make a point.
As I matured I learned to stand up for myself in more effective ways, in order to make a difference and to insight change positively. In these 5 great reasons to stand up for yourself, I touch on issues that are far beyond “killing people with kindness”, and learning how not feel regret or guilt after educating people on how you deserve to be dealt with.
5 Great Reasons to Stand Up For Yourself:
1. Build confidence -
2. Shed light on injustice & disrespect –
3. Set an example/ inspire others –
4. Set a precedent/a bar –
5. Teach a lesson to the accused –
Show up for yourself! Speak your mind and use your voice. Don’t hide behind the avatars and profiles pictures, but come from behind the screen and keyboard to speak up for a group that is being disadvantaged, not just yourself. It’s bigger than just ourselves when so many of us are experiencing so many defeats and obstacles that in the past we were afraid to change.
