This is for the mindfulness class this week. We are going to explore some principles and methods for making unhelpful conversations more effective.
- We all have conversations which are unhelpful and unpleasant. These conversations often repeat themselves, with consistently unhelpful and unpleasant results.
- We try to make the conversations pleasant. So we avoid the real issues and the conversation is pleasant, but still unhelpful.
- Or we avoid the conversations altogether, which is still unhelpful.
