Good day. Before I review yesterday's article, I want to quickly write to our dear Rusty.
Dear Rusty @TheRandomRewarder , I understand that you cannot be perfect to visit everyone, nevertheless you cannot so imperfect to ignore my articles this way. You've been saving lives and I'm sure you're not about to stop doing that.
This is just my humble plea to visit my articles like you used to do. The algorithm might not favour me like that, nonetheless, you can still fair enough to visit. Kindly visit me like you visited @Gaftekloriginal
Back to my review now.
Everyone wants and likes to be respected. We all look forward to being respected in our immediate environment and in our place of work. But you have to earn that respect by showing that you're worth it and by showing that you're a responsible person, by your actions and conduct.
One of the things to learn if you want to be respected is to learn to apologize when you make mistakes, and apologizing at the right time.
Nobody is above mistakes. That is a universal truth. But what we do when we make those mistakes will determine whether or not we are worthy of the respect of others. The only way to reduce the mistakes you make is by learning from the mistakes. No mistake is to big or small to be learnt from. There is nothing to be ashamed of when you make mistakes but it is a thing of shame for you not to acknowledge to a mistake you made even after you've been informed about it.
Learning to apologize for mistakes is difficult because it defies the human nature to be always right and never wrong which is caused by pride. The funny thing about apologies is that you might not understand how much you hurt the other person, nevertheless just apologize because it makes you a responsible person instead of justifying why an apology isn't necessary. Apology is a way of showing respect to people around you and the people you work with or meet everyday.
Two people can fight over who is responsible for something that went wrong and refuse to take the blame instead of admitting to the mistake.
You're not to apologize for who you are or what you achieve, instead you should apologize when you disrespect someone else.
Special thanks to my sponsors, subscribers and also thanks to those who thumbs up and comment on my post, I really appreciate all of you.
When someone is mistreating you, in any way, and you’re letting them get away with it, that’s a sign of weakness. How you respond to these types of situations will say a lot about what kind of person you are. Are you a coward? It takes a great deal of bravery to speak up when someone mistreats you. You’re speaking for yourself instead of allowing someone else to speak for you. If you’re not willing to stand up for yourself, how can you expect other people to respect you?
Being mistreated is mentally damaging; it makes you feel like less of a person. It’s highly important to stand up for yourself, otherwise you will continue to be taken advantage of and it will lower your self-esteem. You have to realize that just because someone is your relative or friend doesn’t mean they have the right to treat you poorly. Treat them with the same respect as they treat you. If they treat you like trash, treat them like trash. They won’t like it, but they will respect it.
You can stop tolerating it by speaking up when you’re being mistreated. I know it’s scary but trust me, you are powerful and you are not alone. The most effective way to make an impact is by standing up for yourself in a calm, tactful manner. You have every right to stand up for yourself.
If you’re being taken advantage of or mistreated, you have to stop enduring it silently. Stand up for yourself. Standing up for yourself doesn’t mean lashing out in response, that will only make things worse. Instead, be tactful and polite when you do it. Standing up for yourself can be scary, but that’s precisely why other people will respect you for doing it.
When you speak up, make sure you literally speak up, do not mumble. You have every right to stand up for yourself.
If you are not getting proper respect at work, you need to speak up. Do not let people walk all over you, otherwise you’ll only attract the wrong kind of attention. If they know that they can walk all over others, they may think nothing of walking all over you in particular.
If the person whose behavior is creating the problem isn’t willing to accept responsibility for their actions then don’t make excuses for them or let them cut corners.
Thanks for reading through. I hope loved it.
