like it's our responsibility
people from feeling bad.
This was a HUGE thing for me to overcome being meek and quiet, reluctant to speak my mind incase I upset someone...to learning to let myself say what I needed to say and allow the other person to be upset about it. It gets easier the more you practise I've found, but I am still wary of the rescuer role I can fall into if I'm not vigilant.
