When others do things that are irritating,
Then anger wells up in us,
And when we neglect … to say how we feel,
Then we are being EMOTIONALLY DISHONEST,
For they have no knowledge that we’re offended,
And they’ll do it again just the same,
That’s not fair to them, to not let them know,
Then we’re resentful and hold them to blame.
We need to say what we feel …. and ask for our needs.
Then they get a chance to correct,
But by continuing to be ….. EMOTIONALLY DISHONEST,
Neither ourselves, nor them, we respect.
