It is essential to like one's own company if you are going to go about disturbing people by expressing your thoughts, needs and feelings to others. I learned this as a child. You will be sent to your room for days, so make the most of it.
People would rather not know what you are thinking or feeling. I've had years of practice at expressing myself in relationships and yet, I still haven't figured out how to do this without upsetting people. Now, if you need someone to champion your cause or to make demands, I'm your girl. I have loads of courage-- on the outside.
I am also very honest. I prefer humility to humiliation. Although, I've had a great deal of experience with humiliation.
Going through a lifetime of painful or hurtful experiences allows you to believe that you will survive whatever is happening--because God loves you more than you could possibly know. It is His Grace and Mercy that will save you each time. This is where I get my courage, even though my immature self would like to think it is because I am bold and brave.
