It takes guts to say –
I don’t know.
I haven’t heard this before.
I am not comfortable in this environment.
I appreciate the good qualities in you.
I am still learning, I am not the master.
I need your support.
I am not shopaholic.
The list goes on and on..
Guts I said, because, many of us don’t speak up with clear message (and waste time in giving hints) with the fear of being ‘judged’!
The point I intend to make here is when we tell- how we feel about something while conversing (on any issue) with someone, it makes the life of the next person simpler. S/he knows about what’s going inside your mind!
Keeping the word ‘assumption/assume’out of the dictionary for healthy relationships is an essential habit to cultivate.
