Frustrations Might Be Preferable.

I want to talk about thinks bothering me so badly. I want to tell them, what they're doing and how I feel about it.
People can just be so TOUCHY though. If I them why I'm upset, one of three things tends to result.

Their problems are so much worse. Mine don't compare at all.
If it involves them personally, they get bitchy thinking I'm taking a stab at them personally.
....or they become overly upset that they made me feel that way in the first place.

I just need to learn how to be less offensive with my speech when I'm bothered by actions or words of another person. Then I'll be more confidant in resolving my issues with others. I mean, I'd rather stay frustrated then upset them too... as long as it's not too big of a deal.

Glad I'm not alone, but I'm sorry you go through the same thing. It can be so annoying at times! I feel like I'm constantly walking on thin ice with some friends I want to say things too. Oh, and my boyfriend thinks upsetting me is such an awful thing and immediately feels extremely guilty, which he doesn't deserve to feel at all. I just hope we can work it out where we can talk to others without them going to the extremes!

i hear you. i wish i could achieve the same results. whenever i have a problem with someone they tend to get really ticked off and want to end the conversation before i have resolved the problem with them. it adds to my frustration and i hope someone has some good advice for us both. sorry to hear you are having the same problem.
