I don't like lying. I absolutely hate it. Even lies of omission get to me sometimes.

As a petite girl, if you're a dude asking me for a favor I feel frightened when I say no and then you pressure me.

Yes, I did have change on me. But I am not going to give it to you because what happens if I do that and then next time it happens I get robbed or worse. It often feels like I can't be nice to strangers without karmic strings attached.

@mara_cav_ "feels like I can't be nice to strangers without karmic strings attached."

Wow, it's heartening to see someone has the guts to admit that.

Well said!
