Silence isn't always golden  
I was thinking the other day about how quick I am to correct someone when they talk smack about a group of people I am not a member of. Yet I didn't correct a former friend for years as she made one ableist and fat phobic comment after another because my self esteem was affected by my depression and illness and I was afraid to lose her friendship. When you become isolated you are desperate for human connection. TBH, it wasn't fair to her either to not speak up right away and enforce my boundaries.

I promise myself that I won't be silent like that again.
