It can be helpful to buy some time to analyze the situation and figure out what we want exactly.
We don’t owe anyone our personal information, especially not to satisfy their curiosity. If the person persists, repeat your stock answer.
When sharing some problem or news with friends or family who are quick to give their opinion, set them up for success by starting with a qualifier like:
When someone makes a rude comment and then says, “I’m just being honest,” it isn't always constructive criticism or even true.
Someone who gives you genuinely constructive criticism is actually rooting for you. If you respect this person & know them to be genuine, you will likely be open to their feedback.
If not, then you can say -
“What you call ‘honesty’, I call you ‘giving me your unsolicited opinion and criticism’. Please don’t.”
Often, if you can open up a conversation, the rest will flow.
Basic conversation starters to get the ball rolling for a difficult :
● “I thought you should know . . .”
●“I need to share my experience of what went down, because I’d like you to understand how I feel and where I am coming from . . .”
Formula: “When I see/experience ______________, I feel ______________ because my need for ______________ is not met. Would you be willing to ______________?”

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
