Thank you Listeners for your patience and understanding when I have some technical difficulties. I acknowledge that the audio isn’t great and the next episode will be better. I appreciate you all for continuing to listen and passing along this Podcast to others.
We are going to be talking about passive aggressive behavior and I have some examples from my own life I will be using. Often times people use passive aggressive behavior because they don’t have the skills to express their feelings or needs effectively. Passive aggressive behavior is a pattern of indirectly expressing feelings and or needs instead of openly addressing them. This can look like non-verbal, actions, blaming, and or silent treatment, etc.
When I think of the feelings of passive aggressive behavior I think about anger, frustration, hostility, irritated there could be other feelings as well. What comes up for you? Depending on the passive aggressive behavior there could be a variety of unmet needs for a person. When I was on the other end of the behavior, I felt frustrated, shocked, and confused. I had unmet needs for trust, safety, respect, and consideration.
We learn tragic ways to meet needs and passive aggressive behavior is one of these strategies that we use sometimes to avoid conflict or confrontation or we are afraid to speak directly for what we want and need. Lets explore this topic together.
