Casey’s eTip: Care Enough to Speak Up

Most people dislike conflict and fear that standing up for their needs could damage a relationship. But staying silent while simmering or hurting inside not only damages the relationship with the other person but with yourself. Instead… care enough to speak up.

Confrontation comes from the Latin for “putting foreheads together.” It’s a way to mutually problem solve (partly by letting the other person know there’s a problem). Use neutral language to express the situation from your perspective, ask for the other person’s point of view and then look for ways to meet the needs of both of you.
