A few times recently I have posted about my frustration and exasperation with Peas. I need to revisit it as I have had time to consider it further. What I have failed to remember is that Peas is just as frustrated as I am. She has thoughts and wants and needs and no way to communicate them to me. Heavens, she is trying but I do not understand and that would be enough to make me lost my composure too! Imagine you couldn't get someone who you loved- who was your whole world to understand something that you were trying so hard to express- wouldn't that make you a little frustrated too?
When I think more about it- my frustration is stemming more from the fact that I cannot communicate with her effectively. That I cannot understand her needs to meet them effectively, nor can I communicate my position to her. So.. my exasperation- while initially I thought was just the way it was- truly is something that I can do something about. I can improve our communication so we can meaningfully communicate thereby reducing frustration and stress on both of us.
