It seems that we all suffer from having demands and imposing our demands upon others and especially within a relationship. How do we know when we are being demanded of?
Simple, just listen out for the tone, and how adjustable, accountable and
acceptable their language is. Demanding and aggression seems to go hand in hand. The more demanding we are the more aggressive we are towards others. I can understand why we have demands of others but I refuse to accept them. Having requests can be so much more constructive in the long term. I guess I do consider demands as a failing but not as much as keeping quiet and failing to express our desires at all. My ideal is the making of requests or being enchanting even to get what we desire.
Aggression just doesn’t cut it with me, sorry.
