Affirmation for July 6, 2011: Dignity

One's dignity may be assaulted, vandalized and cruelly mocked, but cannot be taken away unless it is surrendered.- Michael J. FoxThought of the day:One thing that no one can take from you, that belongs to only and utterly you, is your own dignity and self-respect. Cherish it, and don't give it up for anyone or anybody. If you're in a position where you feel that this important aspect of yourself is threatened, leave. Escape. Where your dignity is safe is where you can find serenity.Have an empowered day!TeamDS-------------------------------------Remember, you can also receive DailyStrength updates by following us on Twitter and Facebook.

How do you make a journal entry? To Rob: Some people may think others are ugly but as they say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and if Jesus is your beholder the Holy Spirit lives inside you and there is nothing more beautiful than that. I have thought that way and for years have told myself in the mirror each morning as I get ready for the day \"You\'re okay, You\'re okay\", over and over until I get out the door and feel good enough about myself. Right now I am unable to leave my house because I am too afraid.

My sense of confidence and dignity is threatened daily at the high school where I work. It\'s not that easy to leave a job, and speaking out to the daily harassment has just blacklisted me. It\'s sad that the adults at a high school can\'t get it together enough among themselves let alone help the students survive bullying and take a stand. And I will mention the name of the school...Glenbrook North High School in Northbrook Illinois...not a good place to work.

It is true that the very essence of my dignity and respect is being threatened and I am so motivated to stop allowing me to be impeded against. This site is going to help me maintain composure and handle the situation responsively and responsibly. This I am looking forward to!!
