fbpx How Do I Address Hard Conversations With My Family?
Authored by Dr. Michelle Murray on July 26, 2022
Dear Dr. Michelle:

My family isn't good at talking about hard things. Anytime something sensitive comes up there is tension and they just gloss over it pretending everything is fine. I have something important to talk to them about, but I don't know how to bring it up. How do I start the conversation?
