This quote has been doing the rounds and I just had to say something. More specifically, “What the…?” and Seriously?
Sorry Steve, no way! That’s just offering others an invitation to treat us badly. Doormat. Victim. Dare I say holier than thou. There is nothing noble in this kind of suffering.
It’s also like saying abuse is okay, and self abuse is okay.
Thank God there are other options where we can function from a place that isn’t hatred, has healthy boundaries and also includes love, respect, care and consideration of self. There are much healthier ways to not lose ourselves.
