I too am battling with two different types of responses. There’s the polite, socially acceptable and expected response. And there’s the unvarnished truth. The mealy-mouthed, compliant answer rendered hrough gritted teeth and glazed over eyes versus the confrontational retort that says your selfishness is no longer acceptable, I’m changing this social contract by no longer participating it.

What to do, what to do? The decisions can be tougher when you know what needs to be done.
