Passive aggression is when a person has hostility toward another person, but does not openly or directly express that hostility.
Instead, they find ways to express it indirectly through their behaviour.
It is a way of voicing feelings of anger without being emotionally open. Don’t expect people to read your mind.
When confronted, passive-aggressive people will almost always deny that there is a problem or that they have any responsibility for causing it.
Tolerating or engaging in the passive aggressive conflict cycle in will only encourage the negative emotions in the relationship to continue and intensify.
