Why am I so scared to speak my mind and run away from confrontation (honest answers)?

When confrontation is coming, I rub. My ex friend wants to talk to me. She removed me from her Facebook friends. I didn't do anything. She seems pissed. Her dad messaged me to message her ASAP. That was three weeks ago.

I’m with you. I hate conflict and I have a pretty long fuse. IMHO unfriending you on FB without an explanation is pretty childish. Maybe It’s her.loss

Maybe your past experiences have seen you nurture a tender personality.
Easier to walk away than face the unknown.
You know you will need to face this issue eventually.
Better to get it done with, if necessary listen to the criticism that may be coming but put your side of the story

What kind of adult gets their Dad to message you ?

Alarm bells ringing right there.

Like who you want to like.
When anybody tries it on with their opinionated b/s. Call them out on it !

Friends aren't supposed to make you feel bad !

@Lovelldo2 the friend removed her, not the other way around.

I dunno .-.
Do you often stand up for yourself? Do you like to argue? Do you think letting others go will make matters better?

@SW-User no no and no
@NotValid hmmm, I guess you gotta just do it :v
Some people have anxiety or overthink confrontation because they expect danger or hostility of they escalate by returning fire. Sometimes it is needed

It is your nature.Some people can deal with confrontation and others cannot.You have to step up and deal with it even if it scares you.
