It bothers me when people sweep things under the rug without at least first addressing them, and I'm not sure how to go about bringing them up because I don't like confrontation. I can confront my husband, but I'm not good at confronting others.
Oh, dear me, Vee I am exactly the same. I hate confrontation and if it gets swept under the carpet, that's where it stays. It is so much easier to deal with things as they happen . . . . where do all these "carpet sweeper underers" come from?!
I'm not good at confrontation but I think it is important to get things properly resolved, so I do confront people when they try to sweep things under the rug. Otherwise, it will just explode at a later date and do far more damage then.
I'm ashamed to admit that I'm one of the worst offenders at this. I've never been good at fronting up to people about an awkward situation, so I try to ignore it and hope it goes away....it never does, though, and it inevitably escalates to something much bigger.
