It’s very difficult because I’m petite and have a “nice girl” look to me. Sometimes I feel like I have a sign on my forehead telling people that I’m an easy target to take advantage of, or offend, or just plain gullible. I’m really tired of playing too nice. I feel like I get stuck with a lot of other people’s baggage. Anyway, it’s gotten better since I’ve grown, but I still have a long way to go. Along the same lines, I need to grow tough skin, and be happy with my accomplishments. I don’t need to listen to other people’s negativity. Their words should help me grow stronger, not chip away at my self-worth.
tiny but tough
