Ep. 263: Approaching Conflict Resolution with Confidence with Melanie [Coaching Series Part 3] 

Living with roommates can be challenging, especially when people aren’t pulling their weight with housework. For those of us with a history of people-pleasing and co-dependency, it can be even more difficult to undo the behaviors we have allowed for so long and set boundaries around our peace. On episode 263 of the Fragmented to Whole Podcast, I help Melanie, another coaching client with the tools she needs to approach conflict resolution in her home with confidence!

Some of the things Melanie and I work through in this episode include:

  • Visualizing a physical force field, shield, or boundary around yourself to protect your rationality when entering into difficult conversations. 
  • Being honest about your feelings while acknowledging your role in creating household dynamics is important. 
  • Your boundaries mean nothing if you are not willing to enforce them with consequences. 
  • Using the practice of bookending a difficult conversation to check in with someone and re-affirm that you’re doing what’s right for your well-being. 

If you haven’t already, go back and listen to part 1 and part 2 of my live coaching series, and let me know what you think! & if you would like to volunteer for a live coaching session in the future, send me a message and let me know. 

Be sure to tune in to all the episodes to receive tons of practical tips on living a more whole life and to hear even more about the points outlined above.

Thank you for listening! If you enjoyed this episode, take a screenshot of the episode to post in your stories and tag me!  And don’t forget to follow, rate, and review the podcast and tell me your key takeaways!
