Vent mode: ON
Don’t use guilt or passive aggressive behavior on your friends. They deserve better. I don’t mean this in situations where it is actually for their own good, such as getting them to get over some stubborn or prideful block that is actually harmful like not going to the doctor when they’re very sick. I mean times when you’ve got something to say, or something you’d like them to do (for you) and you can’t just come out and say it.
I won’t say that preventing this from happening is easy and of course every situation is different, but it happened recently while chatting with a friend and I had to show a remarkable amount of restraint not to send back, “What the fuck did you just say?!”
