I received a very disrespectful and demeaning message from someone I love and I had a light bulb moment. The behavior is a message about how he/she feels about himself/herself and it’s not my responsibility to fix it. I am in charge of my own self respect and self worth. I chose to stay silent and make own peace a priority. Engaging in a fight will only perpetuate the negativity and the behavior. My inner being is more important than that and I will protect myself.
