Want an emotional lift? Have that difficult conversation and get it out of your head.
Do you have a conversation going on in your head? Is there that person you keep conversing with privately, in the sanctity of your brain? Do you replay this conversation over and over? Do you wake up in the middle of the night and continue that conversation?
Have you also experienced the relief of finally getting something off your chest? The realisation that it wasn’t as bad as you thought it was going to be? Did you discover that the other person didn’t respond as negatively as you thought that they would? Ahh, the relief. The emotional and physical relief of dealing with an issue.
How much are we damaging ourselves when we don’t speak out, when we don’t deal with situations but sit on them? How much time and possibly money do we waste by focussing on something that is not productive? How is this unresolved issue messing with our sleep and our overall wellbeing?
Wouldn’t it be great to deal with the issue at hand and then move on. If you have this conversation you will finally find out how the other person is going to react (no more fantasising about it) – you can then deal with that and manage the situation. The stress will be released. The conversation had. Emotional release reducing the toxic energy that goes into holding onto all those unresolved issues.
And you don’t have to do it alone.
We here at ACM can help you if you need help to take that next step, to plan that difficult conversation and then to finally deal with those issues which are holding you backing. Have a coffee with Kate and start the process.
