27 Oct 7 Communication Habits You Need to Break + What to Do Instead – Part 2 [TJJS:EP322]
how to say what you mean
If you’re like most people, you learned how to address conflict through a process of trial and error. Maybe it was just how your parents did things… just sweeping things under the rug or telling little white lies to make sure everyone else was happy.
And, then you get into your adult life and wonder why you are always pulled to tell lies about why you can’t make it to that one work event instead of simply saying that you have plans. Or maybe now there is a shit-ton of conflict in your relationship, but you keep telling everyone else about it… just not your spouse.
Listen, Love. If this is your sitch you are soooo not alone. It’s likely that you simply were never taught HOW to actually speak up for yourself and say what you really mean. In last week’s episode, I covered off 7 major communication habits we tend to fall into instead of simply saying what we really mean. In this week’s edition, I cover off what you can actually DO about those patterns so that you can truly stand up for yourself. With grace and kindness, of course.
This pod explores:
- The questions you MUST ask yourself when you feel pulled to write something off or “sweep it under the rug”
- How to use jokes and being passive aggressive as a gateway to actually say what you mean (this one is easy!)
- The best way to enter into a challenging convo so that the other person is waaaaay more likely to listen
- My favorite way to decline invites without being a big ‘ol liar (You can do this, I promise!)
