Recently, I got an email from a listener asking for advice on how to manage an uncomfortable conversation. You all know that I love to talk about boundaries, and today, I answer this question to empower you in your conversations.
Conversations can be exhausting, especially when you’re catching up with someone you only see once or twice per year. It does not matter if they are related to you or not, you get to decide whether or not you want to be vulnerable. Remember that you can always opt out from conversations that you do not want to be in!
On today’s show, I talk about how to avoid sharing too much in conversations that you want to set some boundaries in, and how you can flip the script and not share what you don’t want to share. I also talk about body language, and I present some strategies to deal with interrupters, and more.
