It comes down to the personal standards you set for yourself and for your life.
I think we have all done this from time to time. You know, not holding your ground or giving in, when deep down you know it is not the right thing to do. I am not talking about anything unethical or unlawful, I am speaking about how you adjust “YOUR” standards to please other people.
Your personal standards are set by the way you treat people and by the way that you let them treat you. Personal standards are guided by a number of factors, including your self-esteem. The only way to raise your self-esteem to to raise your personal standards. Here are some tips to get you started.
- Get honest with people about who you are.
- Tell people what you want.
- Insist on people treating you the way that you deserve to be treated.
Once you are honest with people and they see that you are not going to alter your course, they will make the change… or they won’t. If they do not treat you better and live up to your personal standards then they are not meant to be in your life. Its as simple as that.
Take a moment today, to reflect on your personal standards. Are you happy with them? Are you satisfied with the way your friends and peers treat you? If the answer is yes, then GOOD for you! However if you are not happy, then look in the mirror and create a plan to improve your standards. Follow the three steps listed above to get started. You deserve better!
