I was being bullied at work, by my manager. After two years of therapy, I no longer put up with people trying to manipulate me or wanting to dump all their problems on me. However, this has caused no end of trouble with my family and friends, who preferred the old me. Oh, and I lost my job. Maybe I should just go back to being a butt-kissing hypocrite. All I want is a quiet life, and that seems to be the way to get it.
