There is no relationship where every minuscule aspect of life can be fully disclosed.  Yet when deliberate efforts are made to hide events or significant facts, problems are sure to ensue.  Healthy relating consists of keeping no secrets of a moral or ethical matter, and by having the fullest accountability that common sense allows.  In other words, being known is essential to being securely connected.

Let’s Talk

One of the most important aspects to positive change is communication and questions are the best way to gain deeper insights and develop more innovative solutions. So each week, I ask a question.

“When has secretiveness hindered your ability to draw close to someone?”

Something to Think about

  • You are only as healthy as your secrets allow you to be.
  • Keepers of secrets usually have a deep history of feeling judged and controlled.
  • Secretiveness becomes its own form of imprisonment.

When family members disagree, they can readily resort to arguments about the correct way to manage the problem. (“This is the way it ought to be.”)  In many situations, though, correctness is not necessarily the ultimate determinant for resolving problems.  Sometimes wisdom is needed as a means of discerning how to address problems with full discernment.  In this podcast you will be challenged to recognize that while it is nice to be right, it is even better to be wise.

One of the most important aspects to positive change is communication and questions are the best way to gain deeper insights and develop more innovative solutions. So each week, I ask a question.

“What is it about the deep need to be correct that can ruin relationships?”

Something to Think about

  • A primary focus on correctness tends to overlook deeper emotional issues, as if the inner person is unimportant.
  • Overly correct people lack the patience to get to know someone’s back story and to allow resolutions to unfold over time.
  • Wise people like to hear about others needs, interpretations, and desires as they discern the best ways to engage.

Too commonly family members can resort to a scolding form of expression as they attempt to express needs and preferences.  Virtually never is the result positive, yet it can become habitual. This podcast focuses on the damaging effects of scolding communication as it then contrasts it with a more agreeable way of managing disagreements.

Let’s Talk

One of the most important aspects to positive change is communication and questions are the best way to gain deeper insights and develop more innovative solutions. So each week, I ask a question.

“When you are scolded, what does it do to your approach to that relationship?”

Something to Think about

  • Scolding virtually never solves any problem.
  • Scolding is a shame based form of communication.
  • Scolders are deeply insecure as assume they will not be heard unless they establish superiority.
