Stand your ground. #TheRunningWriter

Stand your ground.

****

I hear that phrase a lot, but what does it really mean?

Stand your ground.

Like just stand where you are? And do what? Look around? Wave to people?

So it’s more of a figure of speech. More like defend what you believe in. Things you hold dear to your heart.

That’s all good, but one thing to remember is to respect other “grounds.” I might not agree with someone on issues, ways of life, or behaviors, but I shouldn’t be kicking dirt and rocks onto their ground.

And neither should they.

We can disagree and still be cordial. Still treat each other with respect. Just because I don’t agree with someone doesn’t give me the right to bash or treat them poorly.

So yeah, stand your ground, but don’t stomp on people while you’re standing your ground. We’re called to love, not judge.
