“Are you avoiding conflict?”
Do you avoid speaking your mind because you don’t want to rock the boat? Do you feel it’s just easier to avoid conflict?
When you don’t take initiative and express your own wants and needs, others make decisions for you – and chances are, they won’t always make the decisions you want! If this goes on long enough, you will start to feel misunderstood or taken for granted. Anger and resentment will grow and you’ll eventually erupt.
You are the only one who can decide to change this behavior!
Next time you’re asked what you want, don’t rush to say you don’t care. Stop and ask yourself, “What do I want?” Then, share it with conviction.
