Hard Conversations

I think life can have lots of hard conversations. These can range from financial challenges, to relationship issues, job / education struggles, medical mishaps & loads more. Many times, we’d prefer to avoid these conversations, ignore them or pretend they’ll disappear.  But difficult issues don’t usually go away & sometimes we only make the issues worse by not having the hard conversation. 

So here might be some helpful ideas for hard conversations:

  • Pray & ask for wisdom, timing, right words & opportunity
  • Choose peace & resist anxiety/ fear
  • Give room for God to help
  • Check your motives for manipulation, distortion, hurt, revenge or control
  • Listen to understand more than argue
  • Some conversations need to happen in pieces & not just a full immersion
  • Give time & space to absorb the conversation
