Tuesday’s Trench Truth
Do you tend to be a peacemaker, afraid of making those close to you upset or angry, even being dishonest to avoid conflict, or just give in to get it over with, or…can you initiate a difficult conversation in order to resolve a problem/conflict?
What if I were to tell you that you can learn how to say no without it causing you anxiety and insecurity? And it’s never too soon to learn this!
Just the other day my grandson admitted to me he was afraid of making me mad so he didn’t come downstairs to have me rub lavender on his feet after he had been upstairs in bed for almost an hour. Oh, what a teaching moment. I was able to say, you know, Bryden, I probably would have been irritated, but then by the time we made it back upstairs and I was rubbing your little feet to help you sleep, I would have been over it. I told him, Sweetheart, don’t ever not say something because you’re afraid of what others will think, feel or do. Always be honest with yourself.
Would you like to overcome this tendency? Then plan on joining us in a small group near you, or even via Zoom for our How to Love Who You Love trench beginning the week of January 25th.
