Standing Up for Yourself Spread
Updated: Dec 13, 2019
This spread was created after a particularly pompous email from one of the other coaches that work with me on our track team. I let the comment go & ended up feeling angry with him-- & angry at myself for not saying anything. When comments that are made towards me, that make me feel like crap, I usually don't say anything so I don't make the other person feel bad, cause a fight, or create a problem. However, I got to thinking about this & I think I would feel less animosity for these people if I just let them know how their comment made me feel & how I will not tolerate these comments in the future. To me, letting people talk down to me is saying to myself, "It's okay for others to make you feel like crap." By letting others talk to me this way, I am teaching them that it's okay to talk to other people this way. This is NOT the message I am trying to send. Before we can learn to love & respect others, we must learn to love & respect ourselves. Much love to you guys!
I have posted a walk-through of this spread on my YouTube channel so, def check it out!

Feel free to modify this spread to fit your needs. I, personally, would incorporate this spread when I feel like I am not standing in my power; when something in my gut doesn't feel right, but you can use it however you wish. Let me now if you tried this out, or any thoughts you may have on this.
