Why do we assume that people should know how to interpret our reactions without us telling them what we are feeling?
We tend to think that because we have an emotion that other people should pick up on that and empathize with us.
Do they really know what our reaction may have involved?
Should they question every emotion that we have?
Not every outburst should be followed by a what's wrong?
Say me for instance... If I am crying the last thing I want is for someone to either:
a. console me readily
b. ask me what's wrong
c. hug me
For me this show of concern only brings on an onslaught of more heart wrenching sobbing and it's almost out of control at this point and very hard to cease.
I need a minute to catch myself and regroup. A minute to get it all out. A minute all to myself.
If we want to be understood then we should be clear about our feelings and our intentions. Don't expect people to know what you are feeling or what you need without our desires being expressed to them.
The only way we can truly get what we expect from others is for us to be upfront and honest and let people know what we expect from them. It starts with trust, honesty and full disclosure! In my opinion~ Smooches KLJ
