I really hate passive aggressive behaviour. If you don’t like what I am doing, or how I am doing it, just say. If you don’t like me, that’s fine, but don’t pretend to, only to turn around and say things behind my back. I know that I can’t control what other people say and do, but when it affects me in this extent, I struggle with how to act and react. I try to be straightforward, sometimes to my detriment, I’m sure, but I would rather say it like it is than skirt around the issue putting on a show.
I totally get that some people don’t like confrontation, but sometimes I believe that it’s better than the alternative. Sometimes we have to face things that we don’t like or are unpleasant. It’s just how the world works.
