Is there any excuse?
Relationships: Friends/lovers whatever. Communication is the key to successful relationships, right? It’s almost a mantra. So is there an excuse when one half of that relationship reuses point blank to communicate properly? I don’t think so.
I’m at the best of times a hard person to deal with, but with this I try to overcome any shyness/ill feelings/whatever when needed so that the other person knows what I think about a situation or my feelings in general in regards to my relationship. After all, it’s what I expect back from the other person.
What really gets me mad (or in some cases heartbroken) is when the other person point blank, hard-headdedly (it’s not a proper word, I know) REFUSE to even address a situation, more so after I’ve gone out my way to talk about something I feel is important to me. That to me is a blatant disrespect to not just my feelings, but me personally.
What I want to ask is am I wrong in thinking this way? I understand people can be private or be shy etc. I for one am a private person enough where I’ll only offer up information I feel to, but when it comes to those I value as friends, partners, family etc. I force myself to open up sometimes in order to try and maintain an open an honest relationship as possible. Especially if they’ve gone out of their way to instigate a conversation. Fine, they may not always like what I say, but I’d like to think those around me can at least say I’m open and honest. I just expect the same.
After one situation that happened recently, I can safely say that I will continue to be open and honest as a person, as that is me and I don’t think it’s one of my bad traits, but Jeez, I really need to assess whether some people around me are beneficial to my wellbeing and have my interests at heart as well as their own.
