Stand up for yourself

It is not up to someone else to decide when and where you stand up for yourself. You are not weak just because you decide to let something slide. It is not required that you call out every jerk you come across. You just may not be up to it sometimes, or you may not have time. There are all kinds of reasons that you may not want to get into it at the moment – those are reasons that are yours alone, you don’t have to explain them to anyone else.

Being aware of what’s going on doesn’t mean that you must always choose to do something about it. Sometimes the best thing to do is to detach and to let it go.  In the end, that is a decision that you make for yourself. It is good to have people who support you when you want to confront someone, but it is better to have people who support you regardless of your decision to confront or not.
