” . . . “I need some time to digest everything you’ve said.” I learned that dismissal years ago when a client said it to me. At the time, I thought it was a polite way of letting me know that my complex concept needed time to be broken down and properly appreciated. Now I know it’s a nice way of saying, This conversation is over. . . .”
Who knew one could learn actual life skills from a light, fun read? I’m Definitely remembering this one. I learned from a very wise therapist once that just because someone else wants to have a certain conversation Does Not mean that I am required to have that conversation. This is a polite way to say “I am not having this conversation with you.” Nice.
