They ought to be had. And the sooner you do it, the better.
Yet, we don’t do it as often as we should, which isn’t great since the opportunity cost is just too high. It may even cost your life!
And it becomes even more important if you are the one needing that conversation.
I know you would hate it. It isn’t the typical “heart-to-heart” conversation we all so love to have. Perhaps, that’s why these “conversations” aren’t as welcoming.
But if you were to choose between (a) sabotaging your growth (as a person), (b) being truthful to yourself, or (c) fooling yourself every day, which one would you choose?
If you hesitated, you already know what am I pointing at. You have to have those conversations if any of those options are important to you.
Acknowledging is a great first step. Following up with appropriate action is the next best step.
But it all starts with comforting yourself and facing reality.
Are you up for it?
