Silakbo – Emotional outburst
Word High July
I do not intend for this to be a long post. It might be and you may as well enjoy the ride with me.
Passive aggression according to Wikipedia is the indirect expression of hostility.
The signs show in procrastination, emotional outbursts, sarcastic remarks, mocking other people, unsympathetic etc.
Passive aggression happens when we have been hurt by someone or a particular situation we had no control over.
I would like to relate what happened to me, a few months ago. I was working in a school as a teacher with about thirty periods in a week, each class period lasts for forty-five minutes. I also had to write lesson notes, students note, prepare for Biology practical classes and also do the work of a class teacher. I might have taken it in a stride if my salary was paid promptly. That’s not the case and so I was struggling to be calm and collected at work but deep inside me I had many arguments with my boss. I must have given her a punch or two and it all ended in my imaginations.
I kept suppressing it until one day while chatting with a group of friends on WhatsApp, I made a few cutting remarks and then insulted another person. I was punishing my friends for a crime committed by my boss.
A friend sent me a private message to ask what was going on with me. He knew something was wrong and it wasn’t what anyone said on the group chat. I told him and I felt bad afterwards.
