HINT: You can complete the phrase above with “. . . when you (describe actual actions) .” EXAMPLE: “ . . . when you don’t pick me up on time.” (NOTE: Make sure you don’t insert a hidden “you”-message here either, like: “. . . when you acted like an inconsiderate jerk.”
2. Express how you feel about the person’s behavior (NOT how the person “made you feel.”) Begin your sentence with “I feel (emotion) . . .” OR “I get (emotion) . . . ” EXAMPLE: “I feel frustrated . . . “ (NOTE: Make sure you don’t have a hidden “you”-message, like: “I feel you acted like an inconsiderate jerk last night.”)
3. Express your reasoning. Begin this part with a “Because …” statement, where you explain why you are choosing to feel the way you are about the person’s behavior. This should not be a chance to slip in a hidden “you”-message. Instead, ask yourself, “Why am I choosing to feel this way about his/her behavior.”
HINT: These steps may be stated in any order. Be sure not to send a “double message” of sarcasm or insincerity with your tone of voice or body language.
