Is it passive to say nothing when you're really upset, but know that you're wrong? I am upset about something going on with my brother, but I actually think I am wrong, and unfairly upset. I acknowledge that I am upset and I can't change that. What I'm wondering is if it makes more sense to express my feelings, even though I am in the wrong, or if it that would be unfair to my brother? So essentially... is it always good to express feelings no matter what the situation, rightly or wrongly, because if you don't resentment always comes? Or are there some situations where you set your feelings aside for awhile and resentment actually does go away?
