What´s REALLY bothering you?

A lot of times people snipe at smaller issues because they´ve never dealt with the real, larger issue that bothers them. You might be really annoyed with how your boyfriend treats your sister, but instead of talking about that you might harass your boyfriend every time your sister is around.

If you find yourself getting angry, step back and consider if it is this particular thing that really makes you angry, or is it just part of a larger concern? If you can address the larger concern, and resolve that issue, you can stop the cycle from continuing.
