(Scroll down to grab an inspirational poster with these words!)
Speak up and refuse to let others hurt you.
Throughout your lifetime some people will discredit you, disrespect you.
They will treat you poorly for no apparent reason at all.
Don’t consume yourself with trying to change them or win their approval.
Leave them to their own judgments.
Or let them walk away.
They can’t harm you either way.
It’s their understanding that is faulty – not yours.
Want to make sure you drill these words into your head? I’m on it! I created a poster for you to print out or pass forward to someone you know who could benefit from this reminder. Voila.
