WELCOME TO MIDLIFE MEMOS
THE SWAMP GODDESS® GUIDE TO MENOPAUSAL MAYHEM
AND AGING ANGST
Blog # 36 by Wendy Kyman, Ph.D.
LET'S HEAR FROM OUR MIDLIFE FRIENDS
After you finalize the decision to have The Big Talk, consider the following:
Choose one friend (maybe two) for The Big Talk.
Prepare your list of complaints.
Specify what you want and do not want in your friendship.
You will prepare something - Right?
During the double milestone, it is usually a good idea to spend time organizing our thoughts.
If you want to forgo preparation because you are able to spontaneously pull off a
successful Big Talk - I am impressed.
Prepare for your friend's reaction.
What will she say to you?
You don't think she will sit silently through your complaints - Do you?
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
Are you ready to hear your friend's side of the story?
Imagine The Big Talk from your friend's perspective.
*How do you think she will react?
*What do you think she will say about you? about your friendship?
