Advice I got from a close friend today: "Don't be a victim"
Sometimes people with anxiety, and confidence issues, are more trusting than we should be. And because of that, we allow more abuse, and tolerate, more than the average person. If someone is doing something that isn't OK, stop it. Don't back down, from saying, or in fact, doing something, about their actions (rather it be telling them enough, blocking them, reporting to police), do not let someone keep you scared and locked up. You are worth so much more. And so much stronger than you think
In my case, my chosen choice of action is not to engage with the person, any longer, block, and get appropriate people involved to enforce they leave me alone. --- Good Bye toxicity!
