Always advocate for what important to you- don’t be afraid to speak up
Many people don't speak up for what is important to them because they are afraid to be judged or misunderstood. You should always advocate for what is important to you, and don't let fear stop you from speaking your truth.
There are many reasons to speak up for what you believe in, but one of the most important ones is the preservation of your own dignity. Humans have a natural instinct to avoid being different, so advocating for yourself can be difficult. However, by standing up for what you believe in, you are able to maintain your dignity and set an example for others to follow. Look around you, name 2 or 3 things right now that if you stood up and spoke out, would affect someone else in a positive way. *Hint Hint- Childcare in this Nation!
The push to take an active role in one's life is more than just a trend. It's a culture shift, where people are shifting away from the mindset of "I'll do whatever" and returning to the mentality of "I'm going to make a life." This mindset change is most noticeable when it comes to self-advocacy.
Acknowledge your own needs
The way we show our emotions is different and the effects may differ, however it is important to acknowledge and meet these needs. If we don't, we could be doing damage to ourselves and others around us.
Be willing to take risks for what you believe in
In today’s society, it is easy to get caught up in the rat race of trying to please everyone and keep your job. It's easy to go along with what everyone else does just because it's easier. Just because it makes it easier, doesn't mean that you won't pay for it in the long run. Standing up for what you believe in can be hard but rewarding. In order to take a risk, you have to be willing to face rejection and disappointment.
Don't have a victim mentality
Have you ever heard of the term "victim mentality"? A victim mentality is when someone accepts an undesirable situation as their own fault, or that nothing can be done to change it. This type of attitude will not help someone to get ahead in life or be more mindful of their surroundings. It is important to find a balance between accepting what cannot be changed and taking responsibility for one's actions.
Seek out an ally or two
The first step to overcoming social anxiety is to seek out an ally. Making small talk, joining an organization or taking a class are great ways to meet people who can help you relieve your social anxiety. Remember that it is okay if you don’t instantly find someone; it may take some time before you find someone suitable. When starting up a conversation with somebody, keep the content light and safe for now, like what they like or where they’ve traveled.
We all know the feeling of sitting low in a chair with our head in our hands, feeling isolated and alone. It can be difficult to find the energy to call someone close for support when we are in this state of mind. However, there are many ways to get help if you reach out early enough.
In conclusion, always advocate for what is important to you- it doesn't matter if you are unsure or afraid. Never be afraid to speak up, no matter how people may react. Whatever is important to you, I'm pretty sure sure there are quite a few people that share the same sentiments.
