I used to be the kind of person who let people walk all over her, compromising, never standing her ground.
Then I was the type of person who never stood down, was contrary on purpose, a complete and utter bitch just to keep myself in tact and not lose myself again.
Now I am the type of person who is fairly easy going, and yet still stands her ground when it is important enough. I have learned to be friends with people I do not agree with and whose lifestyles I do not like.
I have learned to like myself.
