You may feel as if everything you do today falls short of other people's expectations. But if someone is highly critical of your actions, he or she might not understand you or your behavior. Rather than responding as an unappreciated victim, take time to carefully explain your intentions. Even if you're going over familiar territory, it's healthier to share your hurt feelings instead of hiding them. Starting an honest dialogue provides an opportunity to clear the air once and for all.
