“…but I would have liked to have been asked!”
This statement typically…
- …comes from the ego…
- …comes from a fear of being left out, left behind, or not given consideration…
- …covers a situation that says nothing about the other person’s selfishness, lack of consideration, caring, etc., and says everything about the person making the statement and their insecurities.
I have often completed a complaint with this phrase.
I have been fearful, anxious, insecure and not consulted often.
Sometimes, this has led to more conflict as I have reacted, rather than responded.
I’m trying to catch myself and do better.
