"A Problem You Have Or Have Had In The Past"

Today is Day 27 of the 30 Day Blog Challenge, and today's topic is a problem you have or have had in the past.  I've been sitting here trying to think of what exactly I want to choose for today.  I think I will go with the problem I have pretty much always had, and still have.  My issue is not sticking up for myself when I need to.  I'm not sure why, but I have always been bad about speaking up for myself when I need to.  I know some of it is probably tied to my past and some of the trauma I've been through.  It's just a problem that I wish I could magically change.

Let's say for example someone says something to me that I completely disagree with, or better yet, am insulted by.  I will keep quiet about it, and then five minutes later kick myself in the rear end for not speaking up like I should have.  I consider myself a pretty opinionated person.  Problem is, its all on the inside!  So yeah, I would consider this a problem.  What is a problem you have or have had in the past?


  1. I do the same thing. I lie awake at night thinking of things I should have said. Good luck to you in speaking up for yourself. I am going to try harder.

  2. Unfortunately, I think it's a pretty common problem to have, as women. It's so easy to stand up for our kids and family but we won't even stand up for ourselves.
