You Don’t Have to Accept the Entire Outfit.

For those who would rather listen than read, I’ve got you covered. Listen to my latest article by clicking above!

I don’t have to accept what comes with you, if I don’t come with those same and or similar issues.

I don’t have to accept your poor communicative style, if I don’t come with that same issue. I don’t have to accept your baby mama drama, if I don’t have any children myself. I don’t have to accept your trust issues, if I didn’t bring mine to the table as well.  

We have to normalize balance. 

Stop placing yourself in off-balanced courtships out of a longing for companionship alone. Stop accepting parts of people that don’t align with who you are and where the relationship is going, if it’s even a relationship. If it’s a situationship, you definitely shouldn’t put up with any unnecessary hassles or bad habits. Even if it’s a friendship, it’s a no. Practice saying, “No.” Practice establishing boundaries and not letting people cross them. What’s a boundary, if it can be crossed with no repercussions? 

Stop letting people cross you.

Stop letting people play you like a clarinet. You don’t not have to accept baggage, disrespect, bad habits, poor communication, disrespectful language, inconsiderate behavior etc. Sometimes we take on more than we have to because we have big hearts or we’re tired of starting over but, baby trust me when I say, people walk over big and small hearts. Pay attention. Take actions at face value. Stop making excuses for people that you care about when they’re not reciprocating that same energy. You were not placed here to be used and abused.

Take your power back. What you allow is what will continue. You are working so hard on you, don’t let somebody bring their bullshit to your front door, into your spirit, into your finances, into your body. 

One more time for those in the back.

You are working so hard on you, don’t let somebody bring their bullshit to your front door, into your spirit, into your finances, into your body. Stop it.

You know better, so do better and that’s on Mary Had a Lil Lamb.
