How Will I Advocate for Myself Today?
Standing up for ourselves is as important as standing up for others.
The world these days seem to be noisier and greedier then ever. A New York Times opinion piece published last week says it more clearly: America is getting meaner.
Mean isn’t our style. Advocating for our needs is. This week, let’s remind ourselves that we need to be a voice for ourselves by starting our day with the question, How will I advocate for myself today?
We definitely don’t want to join the mean club but we don’t have to be door mats to the meanies. We can be an effective spokesperson for our priorities, values and needs. Really, we’re the best spokesperson we’ve got for what receiving what we need.
