I am one of the least confrontational people you might ever meet. Seriously.
I don't like confrontation. I don't like yelling (except due to extreme enthusiasm about a topic). And I get tired of long-winded, never-ending discussions/debates.
I am also a people pleaser, which pretty much goes hand-in-hand with my avoidance of confrontation. At least it does in my head.
I'm pretty sure those two characteristics made me one of the easiest teenagers ever to parent. Except that I hated having to talk about any issues and always blamed crying on fatigue.
But really, I cannot remember yelling at my parents. Ever. In my entire life.
Maybe it happened as a small child, but that was probably only when I was tattle tailing (sp?) on my brother.
The thing is I have had many a serious discussion with people, in my head.
Often I'll think about how I would kill conversations that I probably should have. Or I replay past conversations with spins that put me saying what I actually feel as well as coming out on top.
I am always victorious in fake conversations. No one can hold me back.
I'm pretty mature like that.
