    @klmillscats– I love it when I have those moments. Unfortunately, I don’t have them very often. I’m not very good at phrasing things the way people like to hear them. I would probably start with something like “That doesn’t make sense. It would be better if we…” I know I should learn to say things differently, but I just hate the games that people play, the hints, innuendos, polite demanding, suggestions that aren’t really suggestions.

    When someone says to me “Would you like to…” or “When you get a chance, could you…” or “If you have time to….” I take it literally. It took me a long time to figure out that when someone at work says “When you get a chance…” they really mean “Go do this now”. The world would be a better place if everyone spoke plainly. Or at least a less confusing one.

    @blackdog, yes, each society has it’s verbal and social games. And for what it’s worth, the US is not the worst offender in this area. And I have to say, I’ve learned a great deal from my husband about thinking before speaking, and choosing the moment. I tend to be reactive and am learning to be proactive and mindful. It’s a process, but most things are.

    Struggling with self esteem,

    new challenges all the time.

    We are who we are.

     

    OK, I’ll quit that.

    Writing thoughts in haiku form

    is way too much fun.

    Writing in Haiku

    Is fun for those who know how

    But I suck at it

    It is very hard

    To say what you want to say

    Writing in Haiku
