I'm not going to take it lying down!

This whole law suit thing has really got me thinking about how much I've changed since having kids. Four years ago if I got into a car accident, I probably wouldn't have gone to see a lawyer, I probably would've done something myself. I am glad that part of me is gone, although I have wanted to do something myself, I have never acted upon it, only in my dreams and victory was sweet. Anyways, one thing I am sad that has gone away is the standing up for myself.

I used to be one of the best people for standing up for myself. Noone walked on me and if you tried, I called you out on it. This is my point, why am I letting these lawyers walk all over me? Why am I not standing up for myself now that I really need to? Where did that part of Courtney go?

I have decided to bring that part of me back. I will not sign papers unless I feel I got everything I deserve. I will hire someone else if they are not willing to fight for me and I will not let them intimidate me. I never use to be intimidated by anyone so why am I letting a lawyer make me feel inferior? Is it because she makes more money than me? Well, she wouldn't be making money right now if I didn't hire her so I will demand respect from her. I am not some peon, I am your house payment next month.

So, from this point forward, I will hold my chin up, walk with confidence and tell the law firm if they don't want to treat me how I deserve to be treated, I will find another one that will. I didn't die in the accident so why should I play dead now and obey. She is there only to advise me on what to do, it doesn't mean I have to do it, so if I feel I shouldn't, I won't!!!

Now pray that old part of me comes back easily!
