I have always been an outspoken person something that didn’t sit well with a lot of my relatives or just people around me but that never discouraged me to put my voice down or stop saying what I wanted to say. I am not saying that it didn’t affect me because it did most of those times growing up I cried myself to sleep or just ran to the bathroom to let it all out I wasn’t really a person who was very comfortable crying while being surrounded by a bunch of people, well recently it’s been a different story altogether I better not get into that, let's keep it for another time.
I think with all the shitty behavior from people around me the thing that didn’t stop me from holding my words and standing up for things that I felt was right was because of my mom and dad, they never made me feel like voicing my thoughts was ever wrong that’s the only flag I needed to survive all that was or is still being thrown at me. & one more thing
we always hear people saying “Ignore, people say what they want to say” but it’s actually not that easy to ignore because people tend to point out things that are the most vulnerable about you and that’s how we get wounded. You don’t get wounded by someone telling you that your nail color isn’t pretty but you do get hurt and wounded when someone body-shames you that stays it’s not something that can be easily ignored. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
So I say don't ignore these people because I feel ignoring these people is like giving them a green signal to mess with your vulnerability more, just work on making that vulnerable part your strongest weapon. 🚩
