I have lost count about the many times I have gotten in deep doo daa for speaking my mind. It’s not that I am rude, stupid or even tactless. I just happen to be a woman of principle and I will fight for what I know is right and I call it when it’s already unfair. Unfortunately, not a lot of people appreciate my honesty. Too bad…
I actually know when to give it to someone and when it is called for. I have been brought up with good manners and right conduct but when I see someone is putting their weight on me or making me look like a fool in front of other people, that’s when my different persona comes out. They don’t call me Queen Bee for nothing!
I used to be timid and say yes all the time. However, I noticed how people abused my leniency and kindness so I threw that Miss Goody-Two-Shoes lady mask and decided to be more assertive and empowered because I know I can and I know I must. So, I equally understand other people who are brazenly honest because they may be standing up for themselves. You’ll never really know until you walk a mile in the shoes of that person.
So, I am sharing this nice graphic I have seen in FB. I had a nice laugh reading this and it really strikes a chord. It’s very me (minus the being rude and ill-mannered).
If you think you have to stand up for what is right and see injustice happen, speak up. Don’ just cower in a corner and accept everything you know you can still improve and change. Speak up! Speak your mind!
