Recently I realized that a situation had gotten well out of control before it dawned on me that simply speaking to those involved would have set us on our way to a resolution a long time ago. So many things have turned into more drama than needed only because no one said, "let's sit down and talk about this". Some counselors we all are.
It reminded me of a song my son learned not long after he started talking....it goes like this...."I can talk, I can talk, I don't need to squeak or squawk. When I need to say something I just open up and talk". I learn more from him than the big folks (me included)!
How about that?
