It was a regular weekday I had just finished my favorite class Interpersonal Communications and I was very glad the school day was over As usual my little brother Jason was being a little brat and following me asking me annoying questions I had just learned about I-Language from the best teacher Mrs Jensen I decided to give it a try in this situation Instead of doing what the little puke deserved a backhand to the face I would try I-language I knew that these feelings of frustration were mostly my part and he was just being a regular kid so I needed to try out the I-Language process I could say what I would regularly say and throw out some you-language at the brat ie you idiot leave me alone This wouldnt do and then he would just scream and make the situation worse I-messages come in three simple parts First describe the behavior thats easy then your feelings about the behavior pretty obvious and last you describe the consequences that it has on you The good thing about this process is that the order doesnt even matter Normally I would have done something drastic but I decided to go with a nicer resolution Jason when I am annoyed by you I feel like my private space is being invaded I might lash out and hurt you if Im not left me alone I described his annoying behavior explained how it affected me and then told him what might happen if he continues Jason replied Fine Ill go play computer games Usually he would just keep crying and whining but since I didnt blame him he decided it would be better to go play his games then have to suffer my wrath The I-language pretty much worked out here and didnt cause any conflict between the two of us In another situation I decided to try this awesome process again This situation involved food
