Have you ever met someone that is so so bad at confrontation its almost painful to watch? Like hair-pulling stressed out from an email from their boss? Somehow, I became that person.

I became scared of having conversations with regular people, because I didn’t want anyone to be mad at me, I didn’t want to get yelled at, and I didn’t want to let anyone down. Which is ridiculous, because I intuitively knew I couldn't help someone else's feelings.
