Hi there! I'm writing to see if anyone out there has as big of a problem with confrontation like I do! Little confrontation problems I have include examples of not being able to ask my roomate for her rent money if she is a couple days late, asking her to put away dirty dishes, etc. There is someone here at work that bothers me, and instead of being able to tell her to stop talking to me like crap I just say nothing and hope to get over it eventually. On a bigger scale, I used to teach first grade. When it came down to having meetings with supervisors and those above me, I would break down in tears during the meeting, even if they were just mentioning a simple thing to improve on. I left teaching because i couldn't take it anymore and now work for a small company, whom the owners i have known for a long time. Still, if one of my bosses asks me to come in to talk I freak out and become really defensive and feel like i could cry at any moment, where sometimes i do. I can not stand up for myself without crying; even when i get really mad at someone, i just cry.. I guess thats how my body reacts. I'm just concerned that I will never get over this and never be able to hold a real job because i can't react to confrontation like a normal person. Any suggestions?

I'm trying to exercise daily. I was doing fairly well until I sprained my ankle 2 weeks ago but now I'm getting back on the horse. Today I walked over a mile with my arm weights that are about 22lbs total. I was out of shape and it was hard on my arms. I also did my 30 situps. I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
