Are you good at standing up for yourself?

Not in an angry way, just do you make it known, that you will not be walked over, taken advantage of and spoken to in any kind of way.

  • Yep, but I may come across as bitchy to some, but atleast they are made aware that they can not walk all over me.

  • Yes I do. I had to learn that the hard way, but I don't allow it people to walk over me anymore.

  • Always. But when it comes to my husband, he doesn't walk over me. He knows that what I say goes, and my answer is final. He respects me and never talks down to me. We're equal in this relationship (but I have the power!)

  • In my relationship yes, in other areas of my life--not as much as I would like to be.

  • Up until about the last 2 years, I was horrible at it. I would let anyone walk all over me. However, now I refuse to be walked on by anyone, especially someone who is supposed to love me, and I don't mind calling them on it one bit if they try it!

  • Yes, I will not let anyone put me down or treat me badly. I deserve better and so do you!
