Stand up for yourself. Oh yeah, you'll be called names, but that's because when someone has that "oh shoot, I've been caught" moment, they feel the need to shift the blame to YOU (they are shooting the messenger).
"Each person has their own scale of what makes them happiest or saddest. Don't compare these. It's because everyone has based their scale on their own experiences and every person has had a unique life journey. Support the people around you through their worst days and celebrate with them during their best." - thank you! I agree with this completely.
