Standing up for yourself and your beliefs is important. If you feel that you are being mistreated, overlooked, or misunderstood, then say something.
Today at work, my supervisor told me that I needed to start completing a task that I believed to be unnecessary and just a waste of my (and everyone’s) time. I expressed my thoughts with him in a professional manner, and stood up for what I thought was the right way to do things.
In the end, it didn’t really result in anything. I still had to complete the unnecessary task and feel as if my time was being wasted. However, I stood up for myself and what I believed in. I also made it clear that I was not someone who would just complete tasks without any question. Maybe it didn’t change anything this time, but next time giving my input might make an impact. Your voice matters. Stand up for yourself, because the best voice for you is you.
