Tact is the discrimination of differences. It consists in conscious deviations. Theodor Adorno
For as long as humans have occupied this planet, there have been bullies. Cowards. Egotists. They do not change with time. One dies, another takes over.
Getting older does not exempt you from people who think they can intimidate you.
Getting older means you can better choose how you react.
Getting older means knowing yourself well enough, and having enough respect for yourself that you can carry on.
Getting older means finding the peace in yourself to be happy.
Getting older means speaking out and saying no.
No to the taunts.
No to the abuse.
No to the hate.
Turn your back on the hate. Take back your strength. No one can make you feel worthless unless you allow them to. If you need help, ask for it.
