Hi I'm Trish! 👋
Back to Blog
Which one are you? 🤫 Perhaps you know what it’s like to be taken advantage of, or to have your #kindness seen as an invitation for future exploitation.
It’s not your fault❕
You were simply unable to manage your need to be liked, which is embedded as deeply in your software as your need for food and water.
Another cause might be your personality.
Some of us rank high on ‘AGREEABLENESS’, which means you hate and avoid #conflict.
Whatever the reason, ask yourself:
Are your sacrifices inspired by pure kindness? Or are they tainted by an element of fear?
I’m not suggesting for us to be #selfish, but instead, that we keep a close check on our REAL motivations behind our behaviour. When we are truly being ‘nice’ we should be operating from a place of #compassion and kindness, not from a place of fear and #weakness.
Of course, this is real life and there are going to be times when we bite our tongue, times when we keep quiet for the sake of keeping the peace, times when we choose to let it go rather than make a point of it.
But the next time you find yourself in a situation where you feel uncomfortable about defining your #boundaries, saying no, or to #speakup – ask yourself honestly:
"Is this about being kind and compassionate or is this about me being scared to voice my own truth? And what – if any – are the bigger ramifications of me not doing so?"
I’d love to hear your thoughts? Do let me know in the comments below🌻
