AFTER THE MIDLIFE FRIENDSHIP BIG TALK
Have you followed through with your plans for The Big Talk? Why? Why not?
Did you tell your friend exactly how you feel? Everything?
What did you leave unsaid? Why?
How did your friend react?
What was your response to your friend's reaction?
Will you have The Big Talk with another friend? Why? Why not?
If yes, will you change any part of your plan?
FOOD FOR THOUGHT
The purpose of The Big Talk is to resolve friendship issues.
After all our discussions, you may choose not to go through with The Big Talk.
It is not always the best choice.
If you did follow through with The Talk:
- List the positives and negatives of your Talk.
- Indicate the parts of your plan that were successful and those that were not.
- Did anything unexpected occur?
If you did not have The Talk:
- Do you have a back-up plan? Describe.
