#SheQuotes on personal power.
Someone said this the first part of this quote to me years ago. I can’t remember who it was or where or when, but after they said “you have to lie down before someone can walk all over you,” I thought “yeah, that is so right,” and immediately after that I said to myself “stand up.” I’ve been standing up ever since. Sometimes I get knocked down. When I do, I get up, dust myself off and stand up again. It works.
