I am a truthful person and people take that as being a bitch. I have this issue where I always tell the truth and if I feel someone could not handle it I just don't say anything. I have a hard time expressing myself and so I joke a lot. People think of me as fun and funny but when I get serious they go, "God, why do you have to be such a bitch? You were so fun to hang out with." I tell people if you don't want the answer to your question then don't ask!
I'm in the middle. At work, I am very nice to my customers. Nice, but strict with my employees (mean if needes). Usually pretty nice to my family (I have "moments". When it comes to driving.......I suffer road rage.
I am nice. I am quietly nice too which makes it worse. So all these amazing things happen for people not realizing I am doing it or I give them miles and miles of leeway trying to be understanding. The only thing I get in return is being run over.
For example, a relative treats me like crap and I don't say anything. Next thing I know for some random reason that same relative is complaining to other people that I did something they didn't like so everyone now hates me. That pretty much sums up my life story.
Slowly I am getting tougher but the transition isn't fun. Now people just think I am mean because I will say no and mean it but, whatever.
