Passive Aggressive Behavior (Overview)

Passive Aggression can sometimes be caused by the inability to say no. For example, if you are a people pleaser and say yes when you want to say no, you will feel inwardly resentful and this can lead to future outbursts of anger. Feelings of resentment and anger are pushed down or ignored for a while and so are forced to surface when triggered later on in time.
