Did you know that you have taught people how to be with you? If someone at home or at work is treating you badly or at least not as well as you would like, YOU taught them to be that way. So you are clear about what you want. You know what stops you. You have goals with which to achieve your dreams and you are the CEO of your life. Now it’s time to teach (or re-train) people how to be with you. We rarely speak up when we are offended, embarrassed, angry or even satisfied with any circumstance. When we fail to speak up, we are teaching others that we accept their behavior by default. Have you avoided a confrontation or kept quiet when irritated or embarrassed?
I know you have....we all have.
It takes a tremendous amount of courage to be authentic: to be real. Fear of confrontation, loss, rejection or looking bad will stop us from being who we are and expressing ourselves fully. How have you taught people to be with you: by letting them know what you want or by default?
Leave a comment about how you have taught a person to be with you and how you might “re-train” them.
