You do not have to accept what you are not ok with to make other people happy. – Unknown
There are times when we accept things just because we do not want the people on the other side to feel sad or bad about anything. It is indeed a good thing about you, but at the same time, you should take care that you are not turning it into a habit for someone else.
Yes, it is important to be good on your part, but at the same time, you should be able to reciprocate when people start taking you for granted. If you do not like something, it is essential that you place your opinion about it on the table.
You should be able to make others realize that you have not been contented with it. It is necessary to make other people understand that you are not okay. You are certainly a good person, but that does not mean that people will just make fun out of you.
You might be the kind of person who says okay even to the things that you are not okay with! Remember that life happens, and you should be able to speak up for yourself, your likes, dislikes, and your self-respect at times. This is certainly a mandate.
You cannot make everyone happy all the time. No doubt, you are a pure soul, and you count everyone in your concern. That’s probably the only reason for which you try to look up to others and help them whenever anyone needs help.
However, it is essential to understand that there will be certain situations when speaking up becomes a necessity. At those points of time, you will need to speak up for yourself. This is important to ensure that you are doing good in your life.
If you keep on allowing other people to do all that they like or wish to, even if that has been hurting you for long, there would be a time when things will appear to be unbearable for you.
Therefore, you need to realize the time when you should raise your voice and state your views in order to make sure that the situation is still under your control. This may make others a bit disappointed, but don’t think yourself to be selfish, it was certainly a necessity.
