I am guilty of kept myself quiet when things are not OK. I avoid conflict, therefore more times that what I should, I keep quiet.
The problem with this is that you are saying that you are OK even if you are NOT.
First there is no way for the other person to know that something is not OK with you if you don’t speak, they can’t guess. It is your responsibility to speak. Not only that, if you keep quiet, the others are not responsible of the fact that you where OK.
You can come next year and tell me that you where not OK. (OK, you can, but you lose already your window of opportunity) If you don’t agree and are not OK with something, you need to speak, otherwise you need to remember that: Silence means you are OK, and you decided to be silent.
