Today I am aware of my emotions and how I respond to them. I don’t always know what causes them but my involuntary response to most overwhelming emotions are tears. I have also noticed that I do not always express what I want from others and then find myself upset even though I know people can’t read my mind.
I am not an assertive person and worry about getting a negative response if I share my feelings or ask for what I want from others, but my logic is not generally rational. I should be able to ask for what I want or share my feelings and if the other person is disagreeable that is ok, too. This is something I need to work on.
I see that I need to better express myself.
I am aware that my typical emotional response in overwhelming situations is to cry.
I notice that this is something I want to work on.
I feel that with work this is something I can improve upon.
It makes me feel hopeful to believe I can be more assertive with my needs and feelings.
