Here are some things we may experience often, but don’t have a concise way of saying it…
- “When one claims that the other person should not perceive the feelings that they do, because they perceive ones own hardships to be greater than theirs”
- “When one initiates an argument, only to immediately cut it off by saying do not wish to discuss it once they want to discuss a counter-point.”
- “When one is simultaneously desperate for attention and terrified of being noticed for fear of being used and manipulated”
- “When one is trapped in the car at one’s destination and frustrated, because the program on public radio is too good, and they want to finish it.”
What do you think? Have anything you experience often, but are frustrated by the lack of a word to describe it in detail? What might be an appropriate phrase or word in Láadan to describe these?
