Difficult conversations; they’re not easy to have. But when done correctly, they can set you free, deepen or strengthen your connection with someone, and even repair a broken relationship.
What makes these type of conversations so difficult to have, is the great unknown they will inevitably put us in touch with…
How will the other person react when I tell them exactly what I think about them, or how they make me feel?
What if I get very upset, can’t control my emotions and say or do something I might later regret?
What if we open a can of worms, hurt each other’s feelings and hit a point of no return?
No wonder, so many of us avoid them like the plague!
When it comes to having a difficult conversation with someone you love, the problem most of us have is not knowing exactly how to go about it. I mean, we don’t have good role models of what having this conversation looks like, feels like, and sounds like. And, I certainly don’t recall ever seeing a ‘Difficult Conversations 101’ class in my high school or college.
So how do you have one? How do have a difficult conversation with someone you love?
In today’s podcast, I share how to create a conscious, heart-centered conversation that will improve, heal and grow your most cherished relationships in 9 steps.
