You deserve to be treated with respect.  Stand up for yourself and for what you believe.  Don't be afraid.

Have you ever seen anyone with ‘an attitude’? With a ‘don’t mess with me!’ attitude? I have. And I don’t know about you, but I tend to stay out of their way a bit. I give them space. I don’t want to be a person that other people don’t want to be around or someone who others have to tiptoe around, but I do like the concept of having “an attitude.” It’s just deciding what kind of attitude it will be. I want people to know I am confident. I want people to know I can’t be pushed around. I want people to know that I will survive and I will be strong and my life will be absolutely wonderful … no matter what anyone else is doing to try to keep me from that. Let them do what they want. Let them act as small and selfish and ugly as they want. They will not defeat me. They will not destroy me. I will be better than ever. MY attitude comes from doing right and being confident that God’s unfathomable blessings and power are mine now and forever, no matter what anyone else is doing.  Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

“Be strong and courageous. The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.”
Deuteronomy 31:6a;8
