Is avoiding it worth it?

What conversation are you avoiding right now?

Go on. Think about it. Whether it’s work or not. What behaviour are you not discussing? What relational issue are you avoiding? What decision do you disagree with?

I propose the time you spend in your head thinking about it, or that you use in distracting yourself, is costing you more angst than being brave and open enough to talk it out.

I bet that you are spending more time in assumption land than in fact land. Assuming what they are thinking or knowing. And we all know what is said about assuming….

I bet you might be working yourself into frustration, which can lead to resentment, and can then lead to outright blame and annoyance. Or the other way around.

Is it really worth avoiding it?

Only you can answer that one.
