Difficult conversations can be scary, if you let them
Hey Tune in to Lifers,
We have all been in situations in our life when we face dreaded conversations about feelings, concerns and struggles. I’ve been there, and it sucks! To be honest, they scare the shit out of me. It isn’t easy putting your heart and feelings on the line in fear of the others reaction or possible outcome. In my head, I create a vortex of scenarios that feed my fears. Next thing I know, the fears have taken over the feelings I wanted to express in the first place, and the conversation never happens.
This scenario is all too common for many people, and this cycle creates deeper problems and more stress. We continue to carry feelings around, and they grow increasingly stronger creating resentment, anger and can lead to an explosive situation. This could all be prevented with a few tools to use when gearing yourself up to have a sensitive conversation.
