Sometimes people misread shy folks as easy to dominate.
What’s needed is a set of guardrails.
As long as your core beliefs and values are not attacked or compromised, nice is a good thing.
But when someone crosses the line, it’s time to defend.
Shut down the conversation, walk away from the person, stand up for you.
Even if it’s family.
If we don’t defend our boundaries, we stand for nothing.
Shy and quiet is a personality trait, not an invitation to abuse the privilege of friendship.
