Your silence gives consent. Stand up for what you believe in, don't expect others to speak up with your best interests in mind. If you don't know what those are, or you don't value them enough to speak them aloud, how will they?
I need to remember this. If you find yourself a bit irritated or overwhelmed, it's a sign that you're spending less time with GOD and more time with this world. Through God's eyes. Spend time with Him!
