We Have To Talk: 7 Tips To Get You Through It

Admit it: The term we have to talk sends a little shiver up your spine. It’s probably one of the most universally dreaded statements. I’m not sure if it’s worse to be on the receiving or giving end, but for today’s purpose, I’m going to teach you how to be on the giving end (without ever uttering that sentence).

Conflict and bad feelings only get worse when we avoid dealing with them. We tend to avoid difficult conversations for fear of the outcome. We don’t want things to get worse, we don’t believe the other person will change, we don’t have the time or it’s just not the right time.  The excuses are endless. And they stop here.

Here is a step-by-step guide to getting you to the other side of a difficult conversation. Grab your balls, your ovaries, or your equivalent thereof and commit today to build some emotional muscles by learning this life skill.

Saboteur

Q:
Dear Dr. Darcy:
My Fiancée and I have been together for 4 and a half years, we are in the process of buying our first home and were planning to marry next year.

Everything was going well and I love her, more than life itself, but, I went out with friends [on] the weekend and cheated on her with another girl. Someone neither of us know. I came home late the next morning and told her immediately. She is, obviously, finding it hard to cope but she is trying. I don't want to lose what we have, but she is against seeing a therapist, for now at least. I am at a loss. I do not know why I made the biggest mistake of my life and I regret it fully.

Any advice you can offer will be gratefully received.
