I learned something about myself today. In the midst of adversity, I will almost always stand up. So long as I’m not the one being attacked. When I see a woman being verbally attacked, I jump to her defense. When I sense an injustice, I speak out. And often loudly. When it comes to taking care of others, making sure others are safe, I’m you’re woman. I thrive on helping others. But the minute you get in my face and attack me, I retreat. Like a turtle, I pull back in my shell and wobble. And in my line of work, while the first thing is good, the second thing makes for a really hard day week.
