  1. (Being emotional emoji)
    For me, this person trampled all the values of our association and it shocks me deeply.
    ___________________________________________

    Pour moi, cette personne a piétiné toutes les valeurs de notre association et ça me choque profondément.

  2. SMS to friend:

    So annoyed with traffic from the railway crossing works. More traffic + more trucks from the works!! I bet ya they muck up and cause even more delays after it’s supposedly finished.

  3. Text to associate
    The more effort you put into his work, the more he seems to expect. Sometimes you wonder whether it is worth it.

  4. I’m not sure my counterpart appreciated the discussion. Was I judgemental? Too straight? Do I care? The data is the data. I can’t be angry about how it’d feel.

  5. SMS to friend…
    I’m so happy for you. It’s amazing. You’re AMAZING! Well done…

  6. Being emotional emoji: how can we get to each person’s needs without spending 10 minutes boring everyone with the exercise directions.

  7. Why does it take forever for someone to get back with a decision? It is sucking my will to live!

  8. Round 2
    From time to time, I must express my strong emotional feelings : when I feel emotional I can understand the meaning of being judgemental .

  9. Email to self:

    If only we could chain the Engineer to the Tradie, perhaps they’ll learn to love each other, that would be funny. Then get a ghost of a previous worker to haunt their every move. Or, perhaps we should tax businesses if they have an accident to cover the costs incurred. Not just the builder, but every single entity involved in the project. It might make people think a bit harder about who they invite to work on the project and how risky to make the timeline/design.

  10. No matter how hard I try to be fair, some people just don’t want to reciprocate. There is no point in continuing the effort if they don’t make an effort in return.

  11. My emotional self is strongly influencecd by external factors, which are outside of my control. They trigger a strong emotional response to my internal self, especially if they resonate or offend my values. The current panic buying resulting in empty shelves at the supermarkets, despite efforts to keep the shelves well stocked. It is selfish and, as a community, it shows a willingness to further expose the vulnerable to the likelihood more suffering.
