Be Graceful And Kind

In this life, there will always be conflict and uncomfortable situations. Sometimes people will come for your jugular. You have to pick and choose your battles, but even when you are dealing with aggressive people it is important to take the high road. Hurt people will hurt other people, so don't go for the insult. Rather, focus on the bad behavior, be firm, and keep it moving. You will set a great example for your family, co-workers, and peers. In your tone, remember: more honey, less vinegar.

Stand Up For Yourself

The boundaries you set determine how people will treat you. When you can sense that someone is attempting to harm you or your loved ones, push back. It is important to defend what is right and condemn what is wrong whether you are at work, at home, or in your community.

Have Clear Rules of Engagement

You have a lot on your plate and can't be available to everybody all of the time. To make sure people don't feel cut off, let them know the best ways and times to communicate with you. Sometimes a conversation is best had face to face and other times a quick text will suffice. Find a scenario that works best for the most important people in your life. There's voicemail and email for everybody else.

Be True To Yourself

Women are caregivers. As such, we have a tendency to be overly accommodating of others' thoughts, wishes, and needs at the expense of our own. Do what makes sense to you. Choose a manner of moving about your day that fits with who you are. Do what you want to do, the way you want to do it. That is how you find your most authentic self.

7 / 10

Find Your Voice

If you don't stand for something, you'll fall for anything. What do you believe in? What causes are most important to you? Find ways to get the people in your life more involved in the issues that matter to them most. You will be happy and more fulfilled when you are working in your purpose.

8 / 10

Embrace The Word "No"

Being selfish doesn't have to be a negative thing. You are smart, talented, and capable which puts you in high demand. However, just because you can do something, it doesn't always mean that you should. Be your own gatekeeper and know your limits. Enlist the help of family and co-workers when you start to feel overwhelmed. That way, you can keep the main thing, the main thing.

9 / 10

Get Personal

Become more intimate with the people in your circle. It will greatly enrich your relationships and make you a hero. Encourage them to be more open and share your thoughts and feelings with them. Be open in communication while being a great listener.

10 / 10

Completely Unplug

If you don't take care of yourself, you will not be able to take care of anyone else. Make time to catch up on sleep, working out, grooming, meditation, reading, or anything else that helps to rejuvenate your mind, body, and spirit!
