Hey there! Thanks for writing in. 😊
It’s good to be aware of how people react to what we do and say. These are called interpersonal skills. When we take a moment to think about them, or reach out to others to get their insight we build upon these skills.
Throughout life, we learn through our actions, which is exactly what you are doing.
Often times, in Tribal community’s communication and teachings are done through a combination of ways like, modeling, non-verbal clues, what might seem like ignoring, or not giving attention. We are often taught lessons through subtle hints, which might be something your Auntie is trying to teach you.
If you think your Auntie might be annoyed with you, you might be right. Try to figure out what you did to offend her. If it seems okay, ask her. You could say something like, “I have this feeling that I might have done or said something to upset you the other day. I don’t want to do it again. Would you mind talking to me about it?”
If something feels off, it probably is. Having a conversation with your Auntie can help you to grow as a person and can help your relationship with your favorite Auntie.
Best of luck!
