Week 3 of the Healthy Relationships Campaign- Having Difficult Conversations

Welcome to Week 3 of the Healthy Relationships Campaign! This week, the Wellness Peers will be sharing their perspectives and offering suggestions on how to have difficult conversations with people you care about.

A healthy relationship does not mean a perfect one, and it is inevitable that conflict arises once in awhile between two individuals who deeply care for each other. It can be between two lovers, two close friends, and family members. Often, these conversations can feel awkward, nerve-wracking, and even terrifying because it requires individuals to be both vulnerable and empathetic while at the same time, trying to resolve an underlying layer of tension. However, these feelings are perfectly normal and if handled properly, these difficult conversations can work to strengthen existing relationships.
