Before going into a tricky relationship conversation, do these two things

#1: Check your purpose

My colleagues at Tuff have a mantra for this:

#2: Check if you are resourced enough

Before you go into a tricky relationship conversation, author Alice Sheldon has a useful checklist to run though with yourself:

  • Am I insistent on getting my way?
  • Are my emotions in control of me?
  • Am I having judgemental thoughts?
  • Do I want to make the other person suffer?
  • Am I looking for them to fix my problems?
  • Am I short of time or energy?

What relationships around you could do with an upgrade?

Remember these two ways to prepare, and good luck!
