How do I start a conversation?
The key word is “start” – you want to start a conversation.
Maybe you won’t finish it the first, second, or even third time around. Starting to talk with others about these difficult topics will make future discussions easier.
Approach the conversation as a chance to get your feelings out, to be heard, and to share your ideas, thoughts, and plans.
Don’t assume that others don’t want to have the conversation. They may be relieved or happy if you bring up the topic! Go ahead and open that door.
