My favorite thing that I have learned recently is,
“You cannot be mad or upset with someone,
if you don’t communicate with them.”
If you say what you really want, there’s no room for assuming. There’s no room for anger or being upset. And there’s no room for that grey area, which ultimately comes from miscommunication or no communication at all.
If you want something, ask. The worst people can say is no. The best thing they can do is agree. Or even better, you both can come to a compromise.
All relationships are based on being transparent and communication – don’t let your lack of words cause a rift and a hissy fit.
