I feel somewhat the same. I do stand up for myself (once or twice it’s happened at least..haha) , but I hate the idea that I MIGHT have hurt someone in the prosess..
Thing is, we don’t really know how people truly feel. Chances are standing up for yourself would be no big deal to them, but it could do YOU a world of good, @velvetpuddles. The fact that we are so sensitive doesn’t necessarily mean others feel the same way we do..
No JD, you are anything but. Standing up for someone else makes you a goddamm hero in this world of apathy and alienation.
Same applies to you, @velvetpuddles. You are not a doormat. Not where it truly matters.
