Bold Love Musings

Posted on Wednesday, October 26, 2011 in Uncategorized

This week I’m writing about “bold love”, caring enough to confront.  As I begin, I wonder about your life, and your history.  I’m curious what your experiences, thoughts and feelings are when tensions rise in your relationships.

I’m wondering, when people have confronted you how did you respond?

Is timing the key?  “Choose the right time and I’ll listen to anyone.”  Or, “Tell me what’s on your mind at anytime.”  Like most people you’re probably somewhere in between.

What if the person is right, are you still defensive? 

What if the person is wrong, do you automatically feel angry and offended?

Does relationship play an important role in how you respond to confrontation?

– If the person is your parent? 

– If the person is your best friend?

– If the person is your roommate or suite-mate?

– If the person is your boyfriend or girlfriend?

– If the person is your son or daughter, or niece or nephew?

– If the person is your step-dad or step-mom, step-brother or step-sister?

– If the person is your mom’s boyfriend or dad’s girlfriend?

– If the person is your teacher or boss?

Why does it matter?  Timing,  tone, relationship they all do.  Caring enough to confront is a bold risk.

More tomorrow.
