I have had some problems verbalizing what bothers me. I can not confront people with issues I am having with them. I allow people to talk down to me. I remain silent when my boyfriend lectures me in a condescending voice. I know that I would feel much better if I could stick up for myself, but I am afraid to. I understand that this fear comes from having a low self-esteem that is triggered by a fear of rejection and abandonment. I rather "go with the flow" and be a verbal punching bag, then take a stand and potentially have a confrontation or lose a relatioship. So what steps do I need to take to re-gain a voice?
