Standing Up for your People

And more than anything, you MUST put yourself in your people’s shoes, try to understand what THEY’RE going through.

I get it…not everyone will know exactly what it’s like having kids, being a single Mom & having to juggle all of life’s balls (knives?) & keep ’em up in the air, all at the same time.

While blindfolded.

And that means doing a helluva lot more than just sitting down at someone’s workstation once a quarter!

Think about it…

“Being strong means you actually know what it’s like to be weak, to feel helpless, to feel like you’re tired of life, and its burdens, yet you still wake up every morning hoping for a better day. You still think positively about your future. You still dig up what’s left of your energy when you’re drained, and you keep going.

Being strong means, you know how to express your feelings. You tell people the truth. You tell them how you feel. Being strong is not bottling things up or playing hard to get or playing games. Being strong is understanding that vulnerability is not a weakness, and feelings are not dramatic. Being strong doesn’t mean you have to be cold or heartless.

Being strong is knowing that you’ll have moments of weakness and fear, but it won’t stop you from going on. It won’t stop you from jumping when you’re afraid of falling. It won’t stop you from taking a leap of faith when the odds are against you.

Being strong means choosing self-love without needing anyone’s validation.”
