We all meet mean people in our lives and often we think to ourselves why we didn’t stand up for ourselves or listen to the voice in our head that says, ‘next time I’ll say this and said that..’ Sounds familiar right?
After uncoupling with a dear friend recently I felt a sense of well being. It made me feel good to assert my boundaries, and feel okay with not being likeable. After all no one likes to have a negative space in their heads which comes as a result of our childhood conditioning to tolerate any amount of bad behaviour from outsiders and yet keep a smile as we have to be mandatorily be likeable.
We are not equipped for spontaneous replies sometimes, yet, don’t feel shy to call out the nasty actions of others regardless of the age, relationship, equation and gender.
Being likeable is overrated, and we often don’t even realise that we don’t like the ones we are scared of being disliked by. Adios and be the flag bearer of compassion, strength, knowledge and boundaries.
