Point SIX: STAND UP for Yourself


STAND UP for Yourself
If YOU don't do it who will?
YOU have to know who you are and what you stand for and do NOT 
so that you won't let other people manipulate you, guilt you or otherwise push you around.
OR tell you what it is you DO like or want out of life.
If you don't learn to say NO sometimes and assert your own 
thoughts, beliefs and opinions then you shouldn't be surprised by the fact that your friends and family will always assume you will just go along and do whatever it is they want.
STAND UP!
Speak YOUR truth, even if your voice shakes.
The more often you have the courage to defend yourself the easier it will become.
