I came across this on Facebook posted by a friend of mine and it really struck a chord with me and I just want to share it with all of you out there.
It deals with verbal abuse and also taking advantage.
It is really strange how some people have two masks, sometimes even more than two, depending on who they are dealing with and unfortunately most of us will come across these people, who knows you just might know one right now.
They could think that the situation you’re in is to their advantage and treat you like a second class citizen, or else they see themselves as a dictator and demand respect. How can anyone who treats others with no respect expect respect in return? Respect is earned, it is not something you can demand, regardless of your position in life, regardless of who or what you are or profess to be.
This is for those out there that are walking that path, by choice or by situation in life. Take a stand, or better still, kick the abuser to the curb, there are better things out there in life than putting up with a person who treats you badly and has no people skills and ABUSES you. Remember, you’re happiness comes first and foremost.
There is nothing worse than waking up in the morning and your first thought is…” What is going to hit the fan today?”
“You don’t ever have to tolerate people who treat you poorly. It doesn’t matter if it is a friend, a family member, a partner or employer. It doesn’t matter how long you’ve know them for or how nice they may have been to you in the past – YOU are allowed to call people out on their ABUSIVE behavior – YOU are allowed to set boundaries about what you are and not willing to tolerate – YOU allowed to vocalize how their ABUSE makes you feel – YOU allowed to share those feelings and experiences with other people – AND IF NECESSARY – YOU’RE ALLOWED TO LEAVE AND DISTANCE YOURSELF.”
Move on, you owe that person nothing, no matter what they might try hold over your head, they are not entitled to ABUSE you and treat you unfairly. Leave them behind and get on with your life. You will be better off without them there.
Take Care out there, you never know what is watching from the shadows.
God Bless you all.
