Successful communication is finding the balance point between what you are saying and how you say it.
Want to be heard?
Think about your message, the ears you are aiming it at, and the frequency needed to transport it from your mouth to those ears.
Having feelings, releasing them and expressing them are three different things.
We all have feelings triggered by internal and external events. This is part of the definition of being human.
We also have a pretty imperative need to release these feelings. How we do this is defined by who we are and what we are comfortable with.
Expressing the feelings to others has a lot to do with strategy.
We have the ability to decide what is good for us - and them - what is effective in accomplishing our goal and choosing how and to whom, we wish to share what we feel.

COMING IN FOR A LANDING
While staying 'cool' and keeping our feelings under control is a definite value in our society, there are moments that a strong expression of feelings is appropriate.
As a means of 'training' yourself in the strategic sharing of emotions ask yourself the following:
What is my goal in sharing what I am experiencing?
Is this an appropriate person to do it with?
Am I choosing a way of sharing that is dumping on that person?
If I am dumping, do they deserve it and will it get me what I want?
