I started into this a little over a month ago, started a journal and something started to take shape. I noticed a pattern about not speaking up. I'll know something is wrong and I wont say anything about it until I can't take it any more, snap and chew someone out. Last week I kinda freaked out on my roommate and this week I let loose on a co-worker. I guess what I'm saying is that I don't really know how to express myself upfront. I just realized a deeper layer of how much I keep my mouth shut and don't say any thing until I blow-up or get paralyzing sciatica. It gets old dealing with certain people. Reading about Non violent communication has not really helped either.
