“Define your terms, you will permit me again to say, or we shall never understand one another.“- Voltaire, poet

“Define your terms.” Tell people how to treat you. You own your life. If you don’t have the courage to tell people how to treat you, they will abuse you. Do not settle for less. And do not be afraid to ask for what you want.

Dr. Phil says, “We teach people how to treat us.” We do it every day. We shut up instead of speaking up. You can make a choice today. To do that, you must first know what you want, your values, and where you are going. If not, it won’t work. And they will continue to tell us how to live our lives. Do you want that for yourself? I don’t.
