good you are thinking on this and you can practice to help yourself.

I think each person handles their wants and needs differently.

Hi Fran, it's right to respect authority, there is a way to express wants and needs without defiance, whether or not it gets us anywhere.

Thanks - it is designed to express one's own feelings without attacking or putting down the other person.

This is also a part of anger management courses.
