What I've changed this year so far

So something I told myself I needed to start this year was paying more attention to how I treat people and how they treat me. When I'm mad I just say whatever comes to mind without thinking and so far, it's only 5 days in but still, I've been good at it. I've gotten way better at shutting myself up and either sitting quietly or walking away. But I've been more loud and outspoken about the way people treat me. When people take their anger out on me now instead of sitting there and taking it and letting them call me names or go off on me I stop them right away and tell them they need to stop. I so far have no let people back in my life after they consistently treat me bad and trash me. I forgive and move on which is big for me because I used to always hold grudges. I used to sit quietly and let people treat me how they wanted and while I would hold grudges against them I'd let them back in my life so I'm proud of myself for not holding grudges, not treating people bad and not letting them treat me bad anymore. It's a personal accomplishment.

Five days is a good start. Those are a lot of changes to make at one time, so if you should have a slip-up down the road, don't give up, just begin again.
