I need to stand up for myself

Over the course of my short life I have always been told that I am always so kind. I hear it at least once or twice per day while I am at work or out in public and in all honesty I have no idea why I am the way I am! Being naturally passive and overly kind was something that worked in my favor when I was a kid, but now that I am living on my own and paying my own bills I am starting to see that people are taking advantage of it. My parents told me this would happen sooner or later and I have to admit that they were correct. Just the other day while I was having my heating and cooling component worked on I started to get a hunch that the repair tech who was actually working on it was trying to squeeze every penny hse could out of me. Despite the fact that she worked extremely slow and and took about six “rest” breaks while repairing the component she still charged me the full price which I felt was unethical. I was too embarrassed to call her out on it in fear of her perceiving me as being rude but, so I ended up paying the large bill and made sure to make a note to never contact that HVAC corporation again. I hope that those people enjoy all of the money they just made off of me, because I am officially putting the overly nice person behind me and will be standing up for myself from this point moving forward.
