Today I write about getting straight to the point. So, I’ll get straight to the point.
Why do we spend so much time and energy suppressing everything? Suppressing little things that end up festering and growing into something so much greater than whatever the initial problem was? Because let’s be honest; everything comes to the surface at one point or another.
A little over a year from last year’s birthday meltdown (see blog subj: My Bad!), I felt myself heading in the same direction; straight for a few conflicts with a side of headache. As a preventative measure, I forced myself to have some difficult conversations.
I can confidently say that a few minutes of discomfort have saved me hours of, “What is he thinking?” And days of, “Why would she do that?!” (Not to mention the respite my sanity truly deserves.)
In the words of my Myleik – and many others, I’m sure – if you have a problem, say something. If you THINK you MIGHT have a problem, say something. Nine times out of ten an “issue” can be thwarted before it even becomes one. You are not a mind reader; neither is anyone else.
I can’t tell you how many molehills I have made out of mountains.
