Some people take too much
We all know that person. If you give him an inch, he’ll take a mile. Don’t open yourself up to that and allow others to take advantage of your kindness.
No one learns anything
Do you sugar-coat things to spare others’ feelings? Stop! If you don’t give constructive criticism, no one will grow. That’s not to say that you have to be mean or hurtful, but you should be honest.
You aren’t being your authentic self
When you avoid being upfront with someone, it puts more stress on you and makes other people distrust you. If you don’t like something, speak up! People might not like it, but they’ll respect you for it.
