Shut up !!

Tuesday, September 17, 2013

I need to keep my mouth shut!! You can learn so much about and from people that way, and I do not have to put myself on the spot light (good/bad). I can avoid lots of bad feelings, negative feedback, and judgment...not everyone shares the same opinion and lifestyle preferences. Bottom line: shut up and listen !! emoticon

  This is the best way for me to handle an offensive co-worker. Silence---

However, there are times when our silence is taken as agreement-- and I might state my opinion.
Respectful communication is an art-form---Ha.

    It's actually a great feeling when you realize that you don't have to have an opinion on everything and if you have one, you don't have to share it. Listening is a lost art that needs to make a come back!
Amen to this blog!

Being in Charge

Tuesday, September 10, 2013

I did not realize that saying NO and setting boundaries could change my life so much. Have to do this more often!
I am a people pleaser and I do allow people to manipulate and control me. I am putting an end to this situation!! It feels so good!!

    Awesome! If we don't set boundaries for ourselves, no one else is going to stop asking for more. Great job!

    I am also a people pleaser and I am still working on telling people NO. You know I can tell my kids NO all day long, but when it comes to my boyfriend or people I work with I find it hard to say NO. Even though I know that I should, it is still hard. Congrats on realizing that you need to do this and for taking control!
