    Go Ahead, Walk All Over Me

    It's something I've struggled with my whole life.  I just let people walk all over me.  I'm just a really nice person and really afraid of confrontation.  I don't know why I don't stick up for myself.  I'm always the one to back down in an argument, just "...

    I will let someone insult me time

    and time again, and can stay upset until they act like it's OK. So the next time they see me if they aren't mean and joke around or something I will just let the past experience go.
