Using My Voice

Yesterday I did something that made me feel really good and I’m proud of myself. A comment was made to me that really hurt my feelings and made me feel bad about myself. Normally I would have just sucked it up and let it go and dealt with my hurt in private. But this time I used my voice. I expressed that what was said had really hurt my feelings, and while I’ve made a lot of mistakes in my past I have worked really hard to move past them and become a better person and I asked that the past be allowed to remain there. They apologized and said they didn’t mean to hurt my feelings, that it was just a comment but they wouldn’t say it again. Having spoken up about my feelings I then allowed it to rest and forgot about it. I felt really good about speaking up about something and making my own feelings the most important and taking care of me. It’s not something I normally would have done and it took a lot of courage because I was really afraid to say something, but I’m really glad I did because it was an awesome feeling.
