I stand up for myself.

Updated: Dec 14, 2019













I refuse to allow others to treat me poorly. I refuse to allow others to take advantage of me. When people mistreat me, I stand up for myself in healthy ways. I can address people in a firm, kind, and assertive manner.


I exercise excellent self-care in my life. I stick up for myself and ensure that my needs are being met.


All of my relationships are a positive influence in my life.


I understand that people can have bad days. I find it easy to forgive others for having a bad day. I sometimes have a bad day and know that I deserve a second chance. I am willing to give others a second chance, too.


However, people that consistently treat me poorly are removed from my life.


I am strong enough to let others know my opinions, preferences, and wishes. When people know what I want and need, I am more likely to receive those things.


I can say, “No” when necessary. I am free of the need to make others happy 100% of the time. There are times when taking care of my own needs is more important.


Today, I make my needs a priority. I treat myself the way I expect others to treat me. I am just as important as everyone else.


Self-Reflection Questions:


1. Who are the five people in my life that treat me with the most respect and care?

2. Who are the five people in my life that treat me the most poorly?

3. What do I need to do to take better care of myself?
