Becoming Offensive For No Good Reason
Season 2, Episode 0
Quite commonly your comments or questions can be met with an agitated response even when there is no good reason for the agitation. Sometimes individuals just assume a hostile stance in communication, and this can create immediate problems. In this segment, we will examine ways to keep hostility from popping out, especially when there are cleaner ways to interact.
Something to Think about
In this episode, we came to understand that:
- Often argumentative responses are given when a simple informative response would be just fine.
- Individuals may respond with hostility because they have been conditioned to believe trouble is just around the corner.
- Rather than contributing to a hostile home atmosphere, you can choose objectivity as your first line of response.
