Navigating Tricky Conversations

Updated: Sep 14, 2022

Have you ever felt the room go silent after a comment you made? Like you could literally cut the tension with a knife?

In this episode of the Beauty of Conflict, Susan and CrisMarie talk about those tricky conversations that sometimes pop up with our partners, families, and even at work. The first thing we need to realize is everything we do and tell other people comes through love and not a negative feeling. Other tricky conversations can include setting boundaries, letting others know how you feel, or even using specific words.

These tricky conversations, when held in a healthy way, may bring a lot of perspectives to the surface and different points of view.
