They say I should hear the positive even by those who have a different way to express it. With that in mind here are a few new ways that my mind will interrupt your expression as long as I have time to bring my temperature down.
NOSEY- I’m hearing that I’m concerned about what is going on in your life and isn’t that nice.
CONTROLLING- My neurons are interrupting this as being a great leader who wants to get things done for your benefit.
HOT TEMPERED- Oh what passion I bring to your life and excitement!
HYPER- I get things done while others just wait and wait could that be you? If so maybe you can hear that as someone who is relaxed and calm but that would get me to complain as well.
FOOTNOTE- Please note criticism should be considered constructive but when it’s burning inside these are some temporary interruptions to lower your boiling point.
