Journal Entry 9

If my life was a fairy tale, the moral of the story would be stand up for yourself. I’m the type of person who likes to do things for people but during my life I’ve run into the issue of caring more for others than I do for myself. This also attracts people who want to use and manipulate me because I have a hard time saying no. I’m working on it, but if I could stand up for myself more then my story might have a happy ending!

  1. Standing up for yourself is super important. This is really good advice to a new Agent. Especially in a fairy tale, if you keep doing things for other people- they keep taking advantage of you. And we all know how people try to take advantage of others in fairy tales.


  2. Hi Ellen,

    I think we share this trait in common. I go out of my way to help people even if in the end it is bad for me. As much as I think that it is important to help others sometimes you need to worry about yourself first. As my senior year at PSU wraps up I have come to learn this. This semester specifically has been incredibly hard for me trying to balance work, school, and my social life. There would be times where I would take extra shifts at work to help my work. However, this would cause me to lose time with friends or working on school assignments. Hopefully, I can learn to stand up for myself a little more as well. Good luck on achieving this goal that you set for yourself.
