    Inferiority

    I work in a popular Mid-North Eastern retail Dept store in PA. I work with a lot of people who have dominating personalities, and I always feel inferior to them, and various other people. Most of my customers try to pull off the "intimidation" mark on me as well. I've been...

    I used to take lots of crap from everyone.

    No more. Either you treat me right, or I don't need you in my life.

    Put In My Place.

    When I was younger, I got put in "my place" a lot. While I wouldn't take crap from people outside my home, to the point I was pretty aggressive, I was very much under the thumb at home. It came mostly from me watching my mother submit to my Grandmother, even though Grandma was...

    I've never been that type of person

    that would just take stuff lying down. I would speak my mind. I would voice my opinion, and if they didn't like it I essentially told them too bad.
