With all that has been going on, I thought it would be interesting to re-post the very first weekly tip. I hope you all have a great week and enjoy this week’s tip! Stay healthy and safe!
“Going along to get along will inevitably get in the way of two people getting along.” ~LMB
Going along to get along leads to resentment and distance in relationships. In order to have healthy relationships – including friendships – you have to be willing to be honest in them. Speak your truth, give your honest opinions, and authentically share what’s truly going on inside you. Healthy relationships are honest relationships. They not only manage honest, difficult conversations, they’re often also enhanced by them.
Challenge: Don’t fool yourself into thinking that the best decision is pretending that something is okay when it isn’t. Instead of pretending, have an honest conversation, share your authentic thoughts, and be courageous enough to respectfully disagree if that’s your truth.
