Sometimes it can be good to express your feelings through a letter, or if you feel up to it, having a family meeting.
When I told my parents, I was blunt about it. They can take the honesty, they are your family. Love.
You could write them a letter. You could have a talk with them when your emotions are in control. You could talk it out with a caring family member, friend or relative who would make your family understand.
The best way would be to say it, be upfront. But to be subtle, you can do it with your facial expressions or your diction.
Well, you can speak to them? Or write to them, point it out when they are disrespecting you and how it makes you feel. Do so in a way that makes you calm and strong, be honest and factual
Good question. Many a times what we think we just keep in mind and even do not show it to our family. If something they do or behave that bothers you, one can try to relax first. Evaluating situation and on good moment taking a step to discuss the issue will do a lot better. A friendly chat and understanding events would prove beneficial.
Sit down and have a conversation with them. The best and simplest way to let them know is by saying "I feel disrespected when you *insert their behavior here*."
Tell them. They won't know unless you tell them that you feel disrespected by them. Communication is key here.
Talk to them about it, let them know how you feel. If you don't want to confront them, then write a letter or an email to them and send it.
if it was me i would want to sit down at the table and talk to them about the issues you have and in a nice way telling them that you dont think they know their doing it but it is hurting your feelings, if you dont talk to them how will they no also you will end up resenting your family in the long run.
Just tell them. They're your family. they will always understand your feelings. Don't ever hestate opening up to yuor family.
The best way is to have a face to face talk with them. I am a strong believer that honesty goes a long way.
Tell them how you feel about it, maybe it will open their eyes a little... not just bursting out, but calmly explain to them.
Sitting down with your family to have a mature conversation is something that works, but may not work for everyone. Simply saying "you know, I'm disrespected, please stop" also can work very well.
Just let them know about it, I mean don't be rude about it. But let them know with a respectful tone and all and let them know they're being too mean to you and disrespecting you and you're not okay with it.
