  •  A big regret of mine? Honestly? (5+ / 0-)

    It's having been raised in a dysfunctional family (OK, nothing I could do about that :) and not having found a way, much of the time, to stand up for myself, perhaps in the face of  disrespectful treatment from others.

    "Hey, wait a minute. Just who are you speaking to that way?"

    There is usually a way to do this. There is usually a way to be assertive, respectfully, without letting somebody else's atrocious behavior, whatever the reason for it, justify your own. I guess this one falls under the heading of "expressing your feelings."

    Thanks for the list.
