You may have to “tweak” your way of dealing with someone if you want to get through to that person and really make a difference. Your interactions with a certain person in your life always seem to be fraught with friction and resentment. That is partly because there is some kind of unspoken issue or jealousy between the two of you. But no matter how long you go back and forth in a passive-aggressive way, you won’t resolve anything and nothing will get better. Bring your problem out into the light of day and you stand a great chance of solving it now.
