Sticking up for yourself

Who would advocate for you, if not you?

Who will take a stand for you, if not you?

Who will stick up for you, if not you?

Stop expecting others to stand up for you

Desist and abandon hope that they’ll be there for you

In this world, we all need to be our own champions

Today, tomorrow, we have to take a a stand for ourselves!



Your prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “stick.” Use it as a noun or a verb; use it any way you’d like. Have fun!

In response to Linda’s SoCS- Stick

  1. There are times that we cannot right the wrongs of others choices.
    But we can do the best we can for ourselves and those we love.
    Once we establish our voice (sometimes there is a delay or other restrictions – like age) – then we must ‘follow through’ and be consitistant. Like learning to say ‘No’ when others expect or demand a “Yes”. 🙂
