reverb10 avoidance

Author: Jake Nickell
The Threadless Book
Prompt: Beyond avoidance. What should you have done this year but didn't because you were too scared, worried, unsure, busy or otherwise deterred from doing? (Bonus: Will you do it?)

i think all i should have done but didn't was stand up for myself.

I seemingly let shit slide that in retrospect i could have dealt with in a more self respecting manner.

i get scared about what the person i need to talk to would think, how they might get hurt, and most sadly whether i even have the right to say when something offends me.

i will speak up for myself instead of letting that need to honour myself and my feelings leak out in less than gracious ways.
