As I'm learning, a change in verbage can change a conversation from a confrontational attack to a simple discussion. Many times we each have slightly (even extremely) different definitions for common words. I could see where the word "approve" would immediately put her on the defensive. How would the conversation have changed if you has said "That would really freak me out at this point in time"?
