    1. There was a time when I built walls and I sometimes still do. I didn’t know that I was doing this until someone pointed it out to me. I was surprised that everyone didn’t think like me. Usually, I catch myself before the walls get more than a couple of bricks high now. Saves energy and work of having to tear them down.

  1. I have always been frustrated by people who go silent and have no desire to come back and talk about whatever the problem is, even if a little cooling off time is needed first. You can’t resolve issues or assist people with problems if there is no communication. I think it’s the most needed skill children need to be taught… share your thoughts and feelings in a non-confrontational manner, and then also to listen to what others are trying to share with you! Great story, Patricia, you could sense the frustration and feeling of defeat.

    1. Thanks, I am glad you liked the story and sensed frustration. I come from a family of silent sufferers. Took a long time to learn otherwise and I still sometimes hide behind a fence of silence.
