After shedding a couple of pounds, I’ve found something. I’ve already found my ribs, and my muscles, but today… I found something new and fantastic. I found my voice. Today I learned that no one, not even the rude man that disrespects me daily can take advantage of me. I will not stand for attitude, for dirty looks, or even for snarky remarks. The rude man that barks back at my dog will not get the nice me, the angry metro workers who give me dirty looks will not get the nice me. The people who respect me, and deserve me, will get me. Sorry suckers!
I don’t know where it came from, but this huge, powerful voice came out. To be honest, this is the greatest I’ve felt in a long time. From this day on, I will not let anyone take advantage of me. Treat others the way you want to be treated.
That’s my lesson for today. I’m happy with what I discovered within myself. No matter how weak someone may make you feel, know that you are ten times better than they will ever be.
I have one piece of advice for the rude people out there: I’m rubber, and you’re glue. Whatever mean thing you say to me, bounces off of me and sticks to you.
