Sometimes we expect people will now what we are thinking or what we are feeling. Sometimes people do know what we are thinking and what we are feeling. Sometimes they don’t, even when they may have done before. We can become resentful when people can’t read our minds, like we have an expectation that they can or should. We can learn to speak up regardless. People will assume in the absence of our clarity, as much as we assume something when there is an absence of clarity. If you want to know something, ask it. If you want someone to know something, say it. Sometimes we don’t ask or say because we don’t want to make someone else potentially feel uncomfortable, so we instead make ourselves feel uncomfortable by not saying anything or not saying everything. The more open we can be, the more openness we can receive. The more honest we can be, the more honesty we can receive. Say exactly what you mean. Ask exactly what you want to know. If you don’t get clarity, seek more of it. No one is a mind reader, voice how you feel.
