Our thought for the day may look pretty simple and straightforward. The truth is though…. it’s not. We can be and often are hurt by others. I’m not talking about physical, this is about mental hurt. We’re often told that we should “turn the other cheek, when someone says or does something hurtful. We hear “Let it go.” Don’t say anything” “They didn’t really mean that”. However, there always comes a time when we have to stand up for ourselves. When we allow others to cause us pain we are giving them power over us, and when we say/do nothing we have just given them permission to keep doing it. By taking control of your power people no longer have the ability to push our buttons. That means less emotional stress and an increased ability to concentrate on ourselves and those who help lift us up.
