I have to admit – I admire this woman’s moxie. Read this article – I think it makes some great and valid points.
I think too often in the past we have all been afraid to make a stand for ourselves. More times than not, we will stand up to fight for others and not do the things we need to do to give ourselves peace of mind. Maybe I’m being bold in speaking for others, but I know it applies to me and if it applies to me then I don’t doubt others have done the same.
Targets tend to have the same mindset – typically we do not want trouble, but we have it thrust upon us. Our response is usually to accept what is being said or done to us and then we try to move on. But I think that I speak for other members of the band when I say that is really not getting us anywhere when we take that approach.
Over the past few days, I have been throwing an internal pity party. I wasn’t sure what all brought it on, but the signs have been there that I am not myself. I am really surprised that people who see me day to day have not said anything. After reading this article, I now can identify what the problem is. This article put it right in my face.
I have been struggling so long to find this same level of guts in myself. I am faced with some big time challenges these days. I have no less than three major issues in my life right now and one is overshadowing the others. But that issue is the one that really should be on the back burner. The other two are much more important and deserve a lot more of my time and energy.
If it seems that I am speaking in riddles, I am sorry. There are certain things I will share in the course of writing this blog and others that I won’t. Let’s just say that the bullying of my past has been front and center again and it shouldn’t be. I have other fish to fry. Soon I will hopefully be closing a chapter of that book called “My Former Life.” I’m not sure how many chapters are left to write in that book, but I’m trying to remain optimistic that it is coming to a climax. Anyway – let’s just say that the Day of Reckoning is coming – the day when I have the final say over my demons. The day when I cast those beasts into the deepest chasms of Hell and move on with my life.
With that said, I think I have found a new role model. This lady says that she isn’t completely proud of how she handled this situation and to a point I agree with her. But she was fighting the same nonsense that many of us have fought or are still fighting. Finding a rational conclusion is often difficult and can even be futile. So I will deny myself any privileges when it comes to pointing any fingers at her for the methods she used. We’re all fighting something – how we choose to put the demons at bay is an individual matter that we each must live with. I for one applaud her for having the guts to make a stand. I wish I had made mine long before I did. Maybe the demons would finally be at rest instead of still looming.
Well – I’ve rambled on enough. Have a read – I recommend it highly:
