I'm pretty terrible in being direct with my husband, well, at least without sounding like an jerk. I'm the queen of "No, forget it, I'm fine."
But my poor husband is left trying to decipher what I'm trying to say from my cryptic messages.
So today, really try to express yourself. Be direct and straightforward. Not aggressive or agitated. I tend to think that if we were all able to just say exactly what we mean, we'd be a lot happier. And our spouses wouldn't be so confused all the time.
