One of my pet hates is confrontation. I just wish everyone would get alone and see things my way, but I am realistic, and realise that the world would be boring if we all thought the same, so it’s an unnecessary evil in our lives that we all have to live with. Confrontation makes my heart-rate go up, makes me question if I am right or wrong, makes me question if I should pick this battle or let the other person have their way. For so many years, I let people walk all over me, I didn’t have an opinion on anything because I just accepted everything for what it was, but now I realise I need to stand up to what’s important to me, and if I don’t like it, I walk away. If it’s worth fighting for, then I fight.
Today, I was asked twenty questions about my time because I had to do something I rarely do… cancel on someone. Is my work load normal for me? Why didn’t I know this when I made the appointment? Why? Why? Why? It was like ‘no’ wasn’t an option. And I was thinking, I don’t need to justify my time to this person. My time is valuable to me, the meeting wasn’t valuable to me, even though this person made out that it would be valuable to me, but in reality it was valuable to them because it essentially meant a sale. And I’m not interested in being sold something I really don’t need, especially when I have been work 18-20 hours a day for the last week. My head is literally spinning from information overload.
So while I have the time to take a breather, I just want to say to you all that YOUR LIFE IS YOUR CHOICE. If you change your mind in something, don’t let anyone belittle you or talk you into thinking differently. Use your intuition and know what’s right and wrong for YOU. The only considerations you need to make are for your children and family. Don’t allow someone to confront you into something that makes you feel horrible in your stomach. Be brave and courageous for those who mean the most to you, especially YOU, and don’t let anyone walk all over you.
