Don’t be a Doormat!

Posted on: June 18, 2010

                      
           Have you ever acted like a doormat? Do you ever
           allow others to stop all over you without fending for
           yourself? Do you allow others to walk all over you?
          
           If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above
           questions, you’re not alone. We can all relate to doing
           that. The key is that we shouldn’t allow ourselves to
           be treated this way ALL the time.
          
           In order to ensure that your peers and siblings
           don’t step all over you, follow these steps.
          
           1.  Develop non-negotiable boundaries with your
           peers and siblings and make sure you act as if you
           mean it.
          
           2.  Don’t allow yourself to be a victim. You can do
           this by ensuring that you don’t set yourself up to be
           cornered and abused.
          
           3.  Have respectful friends and get rid of kids
           who don’t care much about you and are abusive.
          
           4.  Speak up for yourself, and tell your peers in no
           uncertain terms that you won’t be treated badly.
          
           5.  Be ready to tell your peers that you won’t be
           their doormat anymore. This may take some time to
           instill. But it sure is worth it!
          
           Remember that you weren’t born to be abused.
           You are wonderful just as you are so don’t let others
           take advantage of you in any way.
