When is it my turn?
Updated: Jan 30
If you have someone in your life who doesn’t allow space in your conversations for you to speak it may be time to evaluate the relationship. Why is this person in your life? Do they bring you joy in other ways? Do you feel obligation instead of love & respect?
Clarissa Pinkola Estes says in her book Women Who Run with the Wolves” that if we have family or friends who are sucking us dry we need to “put on the brass brassiere! Stop the milk train.” I thought this hysterically funny and somewhat awkward when I read it the first time. Yet, it’s true!
Not all of our relationships are meant to last a lifetime.
ALSO, people aren’t mind readers. They need to know you have something to say, which means using our voice and our words with kindness. ”Do you mind if I share? I need someone to listen.” They may not be aware of their behavior, and if you are willing to take the risk to speak your truth you will find out if this person really is meant to continue in your life.
