It’s okay to stand up for yourself!

stand-up-3

Recently we were put in a situation where we had to stand up for ourselves. At first we were scared to speak up, we felt intimidated by the group of people that we didn’t know very well. The problem was ruining our weekend and after a quick chat we decided we had every right to speak out as we were not the ones in the wrong.

Standing up for yourself can be really challenging and incredibly scary but once you have done it you will feel a sense of relief and so much better about yourself afterwards. I think people sometimes think that standing up for yourself can make you argumentative but that doesn’t have to be the case, people should respect your opinion.

When we don’t stand up for ourselves we end up feeling frustrated and misunderstood.   We have walked away from so many situations and end up wishing we had dealt with the situation differently and spoken up.

In the last few years we have learnt to stand up for ourselves and one another why should we let people walk over us and think it is okay to be disrespectful. It has taken hard work, perseverance and hundreds of pep talks but we are finally there and we will not be turning back anytime soon.

  1. This is definitely something we feel gets easier as you get older. Even though it’s taken us a long time. Now at 29 we realize, like you said, that we have the right to speak up if something isn’t right or someone is upsetting us. As long as we explain ourselves or say it in a nice way that gets our point across then it’s OK. 🙂

  2. I completely agree with this! I think it’s so hard as you don’t want to come across rude but at the same time you have to protect yourself! It definitely helps that you have each other though! ❤ Also, I loveeee your outfits, girls! So cute! xxx
