Could you phrase this as an active I statement?

This could be confused with a diagnosis. Is that your intent? If so, is it intended as constructive feedback? Dr. Bob has said "It's also fine to ask others for feedback. And for others to provide it -- as long as it's constructive." But unsolicited on-line diagnoses could lead someone to feel accused. The diagnos-ee could well have something similar, and an "off" diagnosis could put him/her on the wrong track. For example, Histrionic Personality Disorder is sometimes difficult to distinguish from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. Such confusion could be non-constructive.
