On Saturday at work one of my good friends was just being a jerk. He was doing everything he could to get under my skin. He finally physically shoved me out of the way to get to something. I turned around, knocked his hardhat off his head, and asked him what his problem was. I told him that all he needed to do was ask me to move and I would have moved. I said being polite goes a long way. Then I walked away and he hasn't talked to me since.
It has weighed heavy on my heart since I did that. I didn't harm him, I simply stood up for myself and let him know that what he was doing was unacceptable.
So just now I'm on twitter and RevRunWisdom says, "You have enemies? Good! That mean's you've stood up for something. I read that and was like WOW. You have no idea Rev.
I stood up for myself. I may have lost a good friend. I gained my own self respect though. Treat people how you want to be treated. Be nice, but don't be a doormat:)
