Though this would be the ideal situation and proper way to conduct oneself, the reality is that many people do not feel comfortable approaching someone they have a grievance with or a bone to pick! They do not feel comfortable expressing their deeper emotions and feelings. Finally, a point comes when they have bottled those emotions for so long that they simply burst with a barrage of emotions, lashing out and expressing all their pent-up feelings, anger, and frustration!!
Similarly, on one side, voicing one’s pent-up feelings and emotions can help one to feel relieved and comforted, but at the same time, if it is done it a very cruel and erratic way, where one just bursts on unsuspecting parties, who usually tend to be friends, family, close relationships or even colleagues, then it can lead to deep hurt and broken relationships!
Lightening can strike anytime and usually as this force of nature, it can be very destructive, but when harnessed it allows us to have electricity.
Similarly, even though you may not feel as comfortable to express your emotions and concerns during a calm discussion and because of this you maybe the type of person who needs to feel pent up to lash out, to make yourself heard… see if you are able to harness and steer your feelings in such a way, where you clearly indicate to the ‘offending’ parties that you are reaching your tolerance. And when you do you reach that red mark, instead of just bursting in an erratic manner, see if you can harness and steer your emotions into a well-meaning and respectful conversation.
Ofcourse, do remember that the best way is always to reflect and then approach someone when the issue has just happened, and the incident is still fresh in everyone’s mind. This way, you would have addressed it before it has had a chance to fester within you and the other person would also remember the situation from their near past and be able to respond in a meaningful manner.
What I hope to communicate is that, if calm discussions are not your personality, then there is way that you can still clear the air and feel a level of relief, even as you work on yourself to ensure that you do not let emotions fester within you, which ultimately is very detrimental for your inner peace, overall health & wellbeing, and your spiritual progress.
