Well I tried to avoid conflict by avoiding people. Delusional. People still talked to me. I'm not a loner.
Ten years ago, I started therapy. Day one, I said I want to be aggressive. She said be assertive. But she didn't say why.
Ten years of therapy: loner, hippie, Christian, Buddhist, meditation, sex...nothing got resolved!!! What a joke.
Bottom line is I need to learn to fight back against the bullies
