Maybe it’s in the workplace. We find ourselves knee-deep in adulthood navigating corporate culture, office politics and expectations. At some point, a co-worker makes a slighting comment, and it isn’t the time nor place for a comeback. It could be at home, where our sanctuary comes with bills, chores and roommates of varying relationship statuses. At dinner, a loved one makes a passive-aggressive joke that isn’t very funny. For today’s #50forMe Challenge, we provide a solution to these compromising situations.
The Micro-Aggression Free Zone
Here’s How It Works
1. Print out or download one of these signs
2. Experience micro-aggression
3. Point to sign or pull it up on phone
There we have it. This is an excellent way to assert without a word, and it typically only has to be used once per culprit. Slowly, we can turn our homes and work spaces into more honest and pleasant environments.
Let us know in the comments below what you think of today’s Challenge.
