“If you build the guts to do something, anything, then you better save enough to face the consequences.”
I’ve always had low confidence. When I was younger I was bullied, and that really has a great effect on a person’s self-esteem. Making them wonder what’s wrong with them every day, while getting told you’re not worth it.
I’ve really been trying hard to work on it, or at least change my attitude towards life. I’ve never been able to truly stand up for myself, which is why it’s so easy for people to walk over me.
At work I’m faced with these situations every day. People treat me badly and I take it. There were a few times where I stood up for myself, but it always ended ugly. So now, I keep my head down and do my work. It’s difficult, let me tell you, letting people treat you like shit and having to take it just to survive the day.
I guess we can’t all be brave. I’m trying to be though, but for now… my bravery stand in keeping my mouth shut while at work. They’re not my enemy no matter how badly they treat me some days. We’re part of a team, and if it means taking a few beatings to survive – I’ll do it.
I’ve said what I need to say, and I’m proud of how far I’ve already come.
