Have you ever had one of those difficult conversations where someone walks out the room and you think “They didn’t hear what I was trying to tell them?”

Or, have you found that you’re rehearsing a conversation before it happens; and afterwards you are churning over and replaying it?

Or maybe you’ve had one of those conversations where someone says they’ll do everything you’ll ask them to do but you know they won’t.

If you have, then you are not alone.
