Does your boss, spouse or family member talk down to you or humiliate you? Are you so used to being treated poorly that you have now become accustomed to hurtful words or behavior? Dr. Robin says that when you decide to ignore or live with an unacceptable situation, you are cheating yourself out of living the life you deserve.
Just because you have become numb to hurtful words and bad behavior doesn't mean you should be treated badly. Dr. Robin says that denying, lying about or ignoring a problem might help you get through the day, but it does not allow you to live a happy, peaceful life. "I want you to get out of that closet of denial and come forth into the light," Dr. Robin says. "Make a decision right now that you are going to take what necessary steps you have to change the way you live your life."
