Do you usually hide how you really feel? If so, you're probably passive-aggressive. In other words, your anger or aggression is like cooking with indirect heat - low and slow. Others may not even detect your true feelings at first, but eventually, they get the message.

Here are some signs of passive-aggression:

  • Seeming to cheerfully comply with someone's request, but seething on the inside for even being asked
  • Making back-handed, sarcastic comments as a way of getting back at someone
  • Sulking and withdrawing from arguments to manipulate others

Passive-aggression is not easy to admit to, therefore most people who exhibit this kind of behavior can be difficult to deal with. The point is this: if you ever want to have good, solid relationships, you've got to stand up and face what's really eating you.

Tune in today to find out how you can recognize the signs (in yourself and in others) and deal with hidden hostilities.
