    Hi Quirky & all reading,

    I know who I am. I'm kind, giving, thoughtful, considerate & hot headed. I find I let people walk all over me sometimes & decided this year I wouldn't be so thoughtful & accepting of others' behaviour. I decided to speak my mind more & tell people what I really think. Trouble is, the thought of doing this message me not like myself. I don't want to stoop to the level of others. It's just not Mr. So I guess I know who I am. I just need to learn how to be firm & honest about my feelings whilst still being kind & thoughtful. I haven't mastered it yet, but I will.

    Your post is well written. I want to be kind and stand up for myself but it can be tricky. I am trying be honest and firm but sometimes it is hard.
    thanks fir sharing your thoughts.
