Do you find yourself avoiding people and situations because you know there’s a conversation that needs to take place? Would you rather do almost anything than face conflict? You are not alone. Having an uncomfortable discussion with someone can seem like the hardest thing in the world….. but it doesn’t have to be!
The number 1 principle is making sure your conversation contains words and a tone that expresses both TRUTH and LOVE.
Why? Speaking the truth in love:
- Allows the other party to experience your care and concern for the relationship
- Creates a safe and non-defensive environment
- Opens the door for you to comfortably express yourself
