Life Skill #1 To express ourselves clearly and freely

How many of us are able to say what we want, how we feel? It was late Saturday night. Henry was not home from work yet. His wife was worried. But as soon as Henry stepped through the front door, the first thing that his wife greeted him was, "Where the Hell did you go? Do you know how late it is now?!"

You can imagine how the rest of the night went, as both of them started to argue. If Henry's wife was able to express herself better and said, "Henry, where did you go? I'm so worried about you," the argument could be prevented, and their feelings could be expressed.

Now, think about yourself, when was the last time you were so over-controlled by your own feelings and emotions that you were not able to express how you actually felt? Could the situation be improved?
