Passive-Aggressive?


So I came upon a description of passive-aggressive people and their common traits or actions… I was suprised to see how many of them directly reminded me of…me. I’ve never thought of myself as passive-aggressive. Maybe a specific occasion or two, but definitely not as such a large portion of my personality. Sadly I admit I think I’ve been mistaken. The good thing is though, now that I recognize this flawed approach, I can now be actively combatting it with healthy assertiveness. Like I mentioned earlier- only takes effort till it becomes natural.

I also read that this tendency is often related to over-controlled conditions growing up. (ie: parenting) Now that makes sense!

  1. I truly believe that most passive-aggressive people don’t realize they are passive-aggressive. I certainly didn’t till i went to college and it was pointed out to me, for years i said “i detested people like that”… i should have looked in the mirror…lol
