Are you gearing up for a “big conversation”. Have you already imagined how it is going to go? You’ve written the script for all parties? This is the problem with big conversations that begin with “We Need To Talk”.
Must we really?
Well, they don’t need to be “big” but they will need to happen. Why? Because your role has changed in many relationships and YOU have changed in those relationships. The truth is, that as we go through the changes of midlife it impacts every relationship we have held dear, plus some others that we are ready to get rid of.
But, those four words, “We Need To Talk”, can instill fear in the bravest of soldiers, let alone husbands, wives, parents, children, bosses or neighbors.
In this episode, I take you through:
- Why midlife seems full of big conversations
- How to get to the heart of the conversation BEFORE it starts
- Why they are so scary and how to ease into them
- Why are they SO BIG
- How to start with a question
- How to keep them small and manageable
Good luck, let me know how your big conversations are going!
