It’s hard to stand up for yourself! We’ve all experienced the feeling of being taken advantage of, disrespected or hurt by someone’s words or actions. Every family seems to have “the one relative”… I’m also impressed that if we really look in the mirror…we’ve been “that person” too. My mom used to say “what have I done that has hurt or offended someone else”. I have found that my words have been misinterpreted or twisted by some. I have found it to be true that the people who need to hear or understand words or examples don’t get it. It is without a doubt better sometimes to be silent because your words fall on deaf ears!
