Venting / Attacking

Have you ever noticed that when you're talking to someone, especially someone who's close to you that if you don't watch what you say they can misinterpret what you saying as attacking them. This balance between being open and right brained, so to speak, and courteous and making sure you're not complaining to the world. A fine balance indeed.

I think it is because people you are close to have their insecurities close to the surface, and so do you. So you have to tread really carefully. It's a good sign, I think, because it means you are being emotionally open with each other because you both care. Everyone just has to remind themselves not to read between the lines and take offence - it is easy for things to escalate.

PS I'm always putting my foot in it.
