Standing Up

Updated: Aug 23, 2021

Life, work and relationships all have the ability to overrun and completely overwhelm you.

They’ll all take what they can from you, it can be relentless, unforgiving.

Slowly encroaching in on your time, stealing your attention from you, draining your energy and your money.

Passivity or indifference in this case, is considered consent.

As long as you don’t put a halt to it, it will continue to bleed you dry.

What you need to understand is that your time, attention, energy and money, are yours to give and not for someone else to take.

If you don’t learn protect what’s yours, eventually you’ll be left with nothing.

Feeling tired, broken, hopeless and helpless, a victim to your own circumstance

So it’s important then to stand up for yourself.

Not to encroach on anyone else's liberties, but simply to protect yours.

To draw the line somewhere and declare when enough is enough

Because if you stand for nothing, you’ll fall for anything
