Being a genuinely nice person is something that should be celebrated. Sadly, there will always be a number of people ready to take advantage of you. Worse still, it’s likely that you’ve allowed them to get away with it for far too long. Now is the time to put an end to those problems.  

 

Your first step is to identify the biggest culprits before taking the necessary steps to prevent any further problems. Here are four examples that deserve your full attention. 

 

1| Friends & Family 

 

Admitting that a loved one is taken advantage of you is tough. However, a little honesty goes a long way, especially when followed by a commitment to stand up for yourself. 

 

Knowing when a relationship needs to end can be very liberating. Other examples include spotting a sibling or friend that borrows money and asks for favors without offering any in return. Essentially, any friendship or relationship should be mutually beneficial. 

 

As you get older, you appreciate the fact that quality is far greater than quantity. A small circle of people that enrich your life is the answer. Every single time. 

 

2| Employers 

 

Your employer is the person that gave you the opportunity to earn money. As such, it’s natural that you may let the odd mishap slide. But you must not ignore mistreatment. 

 

This can manifest itself in many ways. Whether it’s pursuing action after a work injury or seeking your entitled holiday leave or overtime pay doesn’t matter. Having the confidence to ensure that you are treated fairly in all situations will unlock huge rewards. 

 

Another example is when you aren’t getting paid a suitable fee. A little research will show what people in your role expect to get paid. Don’t be afraid to seek the raise you deserve. 

 

3| Companies 

 

Most businesses will be quick to correct mistakes when it works in their favor. When it works in yours, though, they are often far less willing to make a noise. So, you’ll have to do it instead. 

 

Service providers often sell excessive packages. Run a broadband speed test. Check your 4G usage. Understand whether your existing home insurance packages have you covered. This info will allow you to contact the suppliers and seek a customized plan to suit your needs. 

 

If a company is unwilling to budge, don’t be afraid to take your business elsewhere. After all, the existing company clearly isn’t that interested in your best interests. 

 

4| Colleagues 

 

Colleagues can take advantage of your good nature in many ways. One of the most common, though, comes from stealing your ideas. You must not let this happen. 

 

Computer tech allows you to make a record of your ideas and input. Do this privately, and be ready to fight injustice when they try to take credit for your work. Or if you run a business, you should use copyrights to protect your innovations. Allowing others to profit is not an option. 

 

There are plenty of additional situations where strangers can take advantage. Whether it’s at work, on the road, or at your child’s club events, stamp it out. You are strong.

4 Reasons Small Canines Are The Dogs!

Bigger seems to better in today’s society. Whether it’s jumbo TV screens or supersize meals at fast-food joints, everyone prefers more bang for their buck. You might think the same applies when owning a pet, yet it isn’t the case. Small dogs, although little in stature, pack a punch that is impossible to forget once you have one. No, it isn’t just their adorable face and the fact they are incredibly cuddly!

 

Small pooches bring a lot more to the table, stuff you’ll love after you experience it for the first time. So, carry on reading to find out why a small canine is the dogs. There’s even a phrase named after them; that’s how incredible they are!

 

They’re Healthier

 

Now, it isn’t a rule that small dogs are healthier and live longer than big canines. However, it does tend to hold true for the most part, and it’s not hard to see why. With less weight to carry and fewer health issues as a result, they won’t have to go to the vets every couple of months. Even breeds that are notoriously unhealthy can beat the odds if they are small, such as bulldogs. Bred to have a greater stature, a Royal Frenchel is more agile and can breathe more efficiently. As a result, one can live for up to 20 years, which is a lifetime for a bulldog.

 

Less Needy

 

Like all dogs, they need love and attention, but they aren’t the features that annoy pet owners. The stuff you don’t enjoy is going out for an hour walk in the dead of winter or fall when it’s freezing and the rain is pouring down. The excellent news is that a small dog doesn’t need the same level of exercise because its body isn’t as big. So, spending all night in the rain can be a thing of the past. That leaves more time on the sofa cuddling with your best friend!

Easy To Move

 

Sometimes pets need to come with you on a road trip or vacation. After all, it might not be feasible to pay for a kennel or to ask a loved one to take care of them for two weeks. For big dog owners, this is a pain as there is never enough room for them in the car or on the plane. Small canine owners don’t blink an eye because little dogs fit into the trunk perfectly. Plus, they don’t require as much food or water, or stops for a walk, meaning you’ll get to your destination quicker without any ‘accidents.’

 

They’re Cheaper

 

Why? It’s because they don’t need as many essentials or accessories. A small dog, such as a terrier, won’t eat as much as a Boxer or Great Dane. Let’s face it – dog food isn’t cheap! Also, there’s grooming to consider. Whether it’s lotions or ointments, a small tube will suffice for a little dog, saving you a considerable sum in the long run.

 

Considering dogs live for decades, who wouldn’t want to cut costs?!
