I swear, sometimes I am far too lenient with my friends. Even when they disappoint me in the past, like standing me up when we're supposed to go out or not meeting to study for the Brit Lit final I need desperately to do well on, I'm still all "sure, okay, just get back to me when you have a moment." But how the bloody fuck do I tell them I'm so upset with them? Am I so scared of losing their friendship that I won't tell them when they do things that really makes me upset? Why the hell am I such a doormat?

I miss my Zilma girls. But the break is almost here, and Baltimore is definitely a go. Gotta hold onto that.

Miss you too darlin! As a former friendship doormat, I will not only tell you that I know how you feel, but that I can promise there's a way to stop being one. You go girl ;) *mwah!*

I am slooooowly learning that it is perfectly *OK* to bring stuff like that up to people. It's hard for me too, because I'm not only shy, but hate having people mad at me. I'm also overly sensitive, and some things I might be upset about initially, later on I realize that *I* was the one with the problem, not the other person.

But if you try and say things in a polite way, letting them know how it made you feel and not saying, "YOU did this-or-that", it's ok. Respect is important in any relationship, and it's fine to ask for that at times.
