The other day I posted a quote here saying “When you stand up for yourself, you stand up for all women.” by Maya Angelou. At the same day on the internet I read someone saying that was not easy for people who don’t like confrontation to stand up for themselves. And I totally understand that, but…
To me, standing up is not only about confrontation or defending loudly and strongly what you believe in; standing up for yourself also means having your back, being your best supporter, regardless, being truthful to your beliefs and living accordingly. And it is possible to do it all with no confrontation, with no raised voice, indeed. Usually those standings are the most powerful ones.
How can you do it?
Showing up for yourself. And if you don’t know what it means, ask yourself that next time you meditate. Listen to your deepself.
