by neeta bhushan


Oh my goodness, loves. I can’t believe the holiday season is almost here! This time of year can bring up a lot of triggers and challenging feelings for people. Maybe you’re reuniting with your family for the first time in a while. You know you have differing views, opinions, and beliefs, and you’re unsure how to navigate having those tough conversations with loved ones. In this episode, I share how you can be a little braver and more compassionate during your interactions with others and some of the lessons and tips I’ve learned through experience. I also am so excited to share my That Sucked. Now What? Conversation and Affirmation cards with you, which can be another tool you use to strengthen your relationships with loved ones!

Some of the topics I touch on in this episode…
