Let me back up a bit because I want to be very clear on what I mean by taking shit from people. When you feel, in your heart of hearts, that what was said to you what negative, then, yes, it was negative. Sometimes, the ones who say it don't mean it that way, or, they don't know it was hurtful, but it was to you. That's what matters, how it felt to YOU.
Now, why do we take it?
