Using I language statements

Write an "I" language statement to the following scenario:

Your roommate keeps leaving a mess in the kitchen and you would really like her to clean up. Be sure to follow the guidelines for an "I" language statement found on p. 179-180 and include at least 3 of the 4 elements found in an "I" language statement. None of the "I" language statements should have the phrase "it makes me feel" in the dialogue as this denies responsibility for your feelings.

After you write your "I" language statement, explain how the text suggests this approach can be used in your relationships even if it feels unnatural when first tried. (p. 181)
