My whole life people have been telling me..."you need more confidence," and "don't let people take advantage of you." The fact is, the second I start voicing my opinion and/or start standing up for myself - I sense that people think that I'm being difficult or just humoring me.
I don't want to annoy people. I want people to WANT to be around me, and people like to be around people that make them feel superior. Right? If being the generous dumb one buys me some friends, count me in. That's it.
