You can learn so much about and from people that way, and I do not have to put myself on the spot light (good/bad). I can avoid lots of bad feelings, negative feedback, and judgment...not everyone shares the same opinion and lifestyle preferences. Bottom line: shut up and listen !! <em>29</em> Tue, 17 Sep 2013 11:27:48 EST Being in Charge I did not realize that saying NO and setting boundaries could change my life so much. Have to do this more often! <BR> I am a people pleaser and I do allow people to manipulate and control me. I am putting an end to this situation!!
