    guys, I have a problem interacting with people, like I'm too shy and sometimes it gets awkward specially in my new work, I feel it's wrong to be the nice guy all day long and hesitate to say NO, I feel light like a leaf blown all over the place, is there any course or training I can benefit myself and become more resistant ?

    Wow was yesterday a trip. I was in a super stressed out irritable mood. Some of it sleep, maybe some of it because of the PMO changes. Did exercise, and that seemed to flip a switch. Also, later, talked with my wife. At first, I was guarded and quiet, but opened up bit by bit. Listened to her, shared. It made a real difference. So often what I'm searching for is connection. PMO had as its origin a scared lonely boy looking for connection, now it has come to be such an obstacle. Anyway, changing changing. Happy to have the angrier parts of that day behind me.

    Having a tricky time here today, so coming on here to read through a few posts and get grounded in this decision. So much of a part of my brain is trying to convince me that this isn't that big a deal, that what do I have to lose, etc., etc. Man, I hate this struggle. But it is my/our struggle, and I see how many of you are on the road with decent miles behind you, and that's inspiring. Your words, too, inspire.

    I'd recommend No More Mr. Nice Guy by Robert A. Glover.

  18. That's pretty cool! I've never met anyone in life or online that shares it. It annoys me when it falls on father's day, since mine has been nonexistent since I was a kid. It is World Refugee Day every year though, which is awesome.

    Maybe try a search for "assertiveness training".
