Well, this is one of those difficult, somewhat uncomfortable resolutions that I know I need to work on.  I very well might be the definition of a complicated woman.  Sometimes, I don’t even know why I do the things I do.  It sucks…

I don’t handle conflict well.  I never have.  I think that I don’t care as much about personally being uncomfortable; I don’t like making others uncomfortable.  It makes me feel like a cruel person.  But, ultimately, talking about issues (or complaining about them) with others, who can’t help the situation, is TOTALLY useless.  It’s inefficient, ineffective, and a waste of time.  It’s one thing to vent a minor issue, but things that really bother you, you need to go to the source. 

I am working away at making progress on this.  I try to keep it in my mind, when I am upset about something.  And, occasionally, I come to the realization that I am being unreasonable.  That can also be a good thing.  If I can’t approach an issue with a stable logic, then it’s probably not worth the fight.  In either case, I am trying to make a conscious effort to improve this character flaw and be more honest with folks, when I am unhappy.
