I'm in my late 40 s and I do have a problem with coinooftatnrn because I'm afraid of going overboard or looking stupid. I think about this ALOT lately because I've always been the one to back down and let people get over. Everyone else around me are the aggressive/assertive ones and I'm the submissive/cooperative one and I'm totally sick of it. I do feel that I'm at the age to say to Hell with everyone because I have been SO unhappy for many many years due to my keeping it all in .
