We talk about coercive discussion, where someone seems to be trying to provoke you into talking about a topic that will likely lead to an argument.
How do you handle when people ask you for help and it’s not clear what they want? What about when you’ve tried to help them before and it hasn’t worked?
This is the first episode of Audacious Compassion, a podcast where we talk about how to practice empathy in difficult, everyday situations.
Hello, everyone! Gregory here. Melissa and I have been working on a podcast entitled Audacious Compassion. It’s a show where we explore how to find compassion in the most difficult places in daily life. In each episode we’ll be talking about a question or advice from a friend of the show, so we’d like to hear from you!
If you’ve ever said to yourself, “I strive to be a nice/compassionate/empathetic person, but holy crap, I don’t know how to handle this situation gracefully,” let us know what your struggle is! Email us at email@example.com. Let us know what name we should use or if you want to remain anonymous.
