Fandango’s Provocative Question this week asks
When it comes to your friends, your spouse, your significant other, or members of your family, is it better to confront them about things they say or do that bother or upset you or is it better to ignore those things in order to maintain peace in your relationship?
Hmmm… Suffice to say I’m someone who is uncomfortable with confrontation in all forms, regardless of relationship. I have a lifetime of experience of not rocking any boats, not playing devils advocate just for the sheer hell of it, not unnecessarily sticking my head above any precariously positioned parapets, just keeping-my-mouth-shut people-pleasing at all costs – basically no jumping in unless I’m pushed beyond reason.
To be completely honest I’m even feeling uncomfortable with the thought of writing what I really want to say in this post because I feel like I should be really careful with what I share to be sure that no-one who reads my blog takes issue with my personal opinion to the point of commenting adversely… But then maybe that’s the whole point of posing a provocative question in the first place?
