Be clear on how you feel and when you share that with someone and they say:
"Oh you're too sensitive or you're taking it the wrong way"
or "I didn't mean it like that or
You misinterpreted + that wasn't my intention...."
THEN you start to backpedal and question how you feel! Maybe You feel guilty or bad or embarrassed or second guess yourself??!!
No no no!!
Remember be clear. I feel this way! Period.
Don' t let anyone talk you out of it.
Repeat: I AM CLEAR on how I feel!!
Reminder: when it's family or in your career or anywhere......
It is more important to be clear + not
Allow OR accommodate OR brush over bad behavior!!
That is in all areas of life!
Or brush over---Bad behavior that is affecting your soul and disrespecting or dishonoring or hurting you.
-your feelings matter
-Honor your feelings
-No one is your shoes living your life.
-be empowered in your truth.
-Never confuse your clarity for what you see + what you feel + what is going on, with someone else's opinion. THAT is your instinct, inner wise self, + spirit TRUTH!
