can't sleep

i expect people to ask me if i'm upset about something because it seems like telling them outright is unloading a burden on them that they didn't ask for or want.

this is a big source of dissatisfaction for me because people can't read my mind and know when i'm upset though i desperately want them to.

this is also why i shy away from telling someone when something they said bothers me. after all, my arguments are typically reduced to the idea that my opinion is stupid and irrelevant.
