One's right to show others how to treat you.....

Complaining, complaining, complaining.
How useless it is to complain, UNLESS..... Yes there is a HUGE 'UNLESS' here we cannot miss and one which makes ALL the difference.

Unless you do it right there, right then
Without fear or baggage
without mincing nervous words
or doubting ones intentions a million times over
to the very person who caused the injury
to the very situation in which it began

I hardly ever complain for GENERALLY if I am unhappy about you
right then
right there
fast and easy.....cut it like butter.

How futile and draining to spread discontent yet fear confronting its source with resolve
Is it better being killed while fighting
or laying there....waddling in fearful, quiet discontent?

I don't believe in turning the other cheek
or thanking one for being rude
as if there were a lesson rudeness could teach us

I agree, 'bumps' on the journey is an opportunity to learn,
But in not respecting our own discontent and keeping it muffled
we can't change anything, not in us, or in them.

So next time you feel stepped on, or pushed, or stomped
speak up,
push back,
do it firmly, yet kindly
do it decisively, but without ugliness in the mix
You might just feel better about yourself
and allowed the other to
know how to treat others better.

“If you make an ass out of yourself, there will always be someone to ride you”

Bruce Lee

"Your action should be like the immediacy of a shadow adapting to its moving object. Your task is simply to complete the other half of the oneness spontaneously. In combat, spontaneity rules; rote performance of technique perishes."

_Bruce Lee
