'Be anxious for nothing..." ~Philippians 4:6

"Don't copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think; then you will learn to know God's will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect." ~Romans 12:2

When you're usually the one who concedes;
Goes along just to keep the peace
It's a little startling when you say, "No".
When the expectation's that you'll fold
Stay silent, and do as you are told
Choosing your own way 
Might jump start World War III

When you've taught them how to treat you
And you've schooled them very well
Your "aha's" and epiphanies might be too hard to sell
When its always been their way
And your opinions never count
And you've never once pushed back
Be prepared for the fallout
When you decide to do
What they do all the time--
Regard their needs,
Assert their rights, 
And speak their minds

You'll be a force the day you learn
That Respect is a prize that's earned
Whether they like, or love you's 
Neither here nor there
You have a perfect right to be
Moreover, start right now, 
You'll see
Circumstances will change 
When you change the way you think
