The Art of Sensitive Conversations

I’m not a native English speaker, but the idioms found in the language have fascinated me for many years. I mean, can you picture someone being as happy as a dog with two tails? Or what a bull in a china shop would actually look like?

Thinking about bulls in china shops reminded me of a conversation I had a few months ago.

My husband and I had recently moved to a new town, and I had joined various organizations to get involved in the community, and to get to know some people.

One of the groups I joined invited all the new members for coffee at a local restaurant. However, I find it socially awkward to have coffee in a public place with a bunch of people I don’t know.

I was last to arrive. I took my seat and quickly introduced myself to the people closest to me. As the formal introductions were about to begin, the chairperson’s phone rang and he had to take the call.

Enter Mrs Bull, a petite, youngish woman. She was one of the new members, but she had the confidence to start asking people around the table all kinds of questions.

A Note from the Editor

This website is a labor of love filled primarily with curated content from many people and places.  Any content that comes from elsewhere will be shown with quotes or links.  My desire is to create a space for others to gather who are on a spiritual journey, doing their own internal work and have a deep calling to make the world a better place.  Whenever possible (mostly timing), I will share my thoughts around the content I shared...add my perspective...but sometimes I know I won't be able to do this and still want to be able to share in the moment...when it feels relevant to me and hopefully relevant for you.  I hope you find value in the conversations at this table and will join me on a regular basis.  You can also find me on Instagram and on Facebook.

Know Better. Do Better. Be Better.
