    This should be on the refrigerator of everyone in the Society! You should make it into a magnet.
    Great stuff.

    Fall out is not about you! It has to do with a control freak not getting his/her way.

    My favorites are #1, 4, 5, 6, and 10. Giving excuses and apologizing were the hardest steps for me. Especially at church. I helped with preschool child care for several years, and finally just didn’t want to do it anymore. My first inclination was to make excuses and apologize, “I’m so sorry, but my arthritis…” But I stopped myself. Even though that was true enough, it wasn’t the real reason, and why should I have to explain and apologize? I volunteered for 3 years, why should I feel guilty! So I just said, “I’ve enjoyed it, I just don’t want to do it anymore.” The director developed “fish mouth”; I just smiled and walked away. I’m still welcome at the church, by the way.

    But being scared of the fallout is one reason I’m a doormat. 🙁

      Hi Mary, we are all “scared of the fallout”. But there comes a time when you have to just take a chance. Stand up and speak out and not worry about “what other people will say” or “what will happen.” As long as you are not intentionally hurtful to anyone, you have a right to be YOU. To voice YOUR opinions, have YOUR needs met. And to let people know when they’ve hurt you. Hope this inspires you to live your life YOUR way. <3 Rose G.

    You actually make it appear really easy along with your presentation but I to find this topic to be really something which I believe I would never understand. It seems too complicated and extremely huge for me. I’m having a look ahead for your subsequent post, I will attempt to get the grasp of it!|
