#028: The Damage Done by What Goes Unspoken

Many of us typically consider the consequences of our words and actions. However, we sometimes pay no attention at all to the consequences of what goes unsaid. Silence can stifle our relationships as we each default to what we “know” to be true and play out self-confirming narratives for an audience of one.

Problematic or troubled feelings are unlikely to be resolved through silence. In this episode, Mel highlights the damage done by what remains unspoken between people, and how that constructs a barrier to healthy relating.

The pathway toward emotional intimacy comes from sharing more, not less.
