We spend our lives fighting our corner, having to defend ourselves through conversations that have taken place, where we’re told what to do, or given a fait accompli. You get the picture.
It stems from a lifetime growing up, in families, through sibling rivalry, miscommunication, a society that expects conformity, with us being coerced into thinking and believing what we’re told.
It would be great to think others have our backs if we needed it that they’d be okay with our decisions, but that isn’t always the case. Others aren’t always forthcoming, the help isn’t always there and it often comes at a cost, then we end up having to fight our corner on our own and that’s something we’d still need to be prepared for.
Although fighting our corner can be hard and stressful at times, sometimes it’s the easiest way to find peace. If we’re bothered about having to fight our corner, that comes with numerous complications and consequences. It’s just better to be okay with it, sometimes it’s easier that way.
