… Or Believe Strongly In What You’re, Like, Saying…

I’m going to keep laying it all out there. And we’re going to keep having discussions. And sometimes I’m going to piss you off. And sometimes, but even more rarely, I’m going to say something in comments doesn’t fly for me. But I’m always going to be as thoughtful as I can be, and as honest as I know how to be. And we’re going to figure it out together.

  1. Gotta say–I’ve REALLY enjoyed the discussions on the blog this week. Definitely made me think, which is always a good thing!

    • The discussions here have been some of the most engaging that I’ve seen on the internet, all week. They may not go 100% smoothly, but they’ve been though provoking and real.

      Which is all to say that I’m super glad this isn’t scaring you off of hosting the discussions, Lauren!

      • Thanks for saying that. I don’t always feel like I’m doing a good job. I really don’t like conflict, so when there is conflict I feel like I’m not communicating effectively. This week has just been rough.

  2. Truth to power is not a question.

    Have a good weekend, Lauren.

  3. This video is amazing. I am definitely guilty of inviting people to join me on the bandwagon of my own uncertainty. I also want to echo the comments that the discussion has been great. Thank you for allowing it to continue, even when people say things that you disagree with, or go in a direction you didn’t want to go. The discussion is valuable. I haven’t weighed in on your last two posts, even though they made me think lots of thoughts, because I’m still sorting out those thoughts and figuring out what I want to say, but I wanted you to know that you made me think, and I appreciate it. I’m sorry your week was rough, and hope that doesn’t do anything to impede future conversations of this sort.

    Also, one last minute thought. I don’t think that conflict means you aren’t communicating effectively (necessarily). I think it means that people react to things we say in unexpected ways, and we can’t control those reactions, and sometimes people are just going to disagree.

  4. I agree with Sandy!

    conversations on lots of topics, not to mention personal topics like life choices, are apt to bring up slight conflict, regardless of how clear and inclusive we try to be.

    I love this dude’s spoken word piece! It freaking rocks. I am guilty of it, though, for sure.

  5. Taylor Mali is the best! Thanks for bringing this clip back into my life.

Who the hell is she?


Lauren

I am a writer living in Seattle and I believe that life is a grand adventure and only boring if you believe it to be. Plus! You don't need money to have fun.

I live with my husband, a photographer by education and a maker-of-video-games by trade, and a baby named gabe in an apartment on the hill.

I am romantic about most things and I cry... about almost anything. I tell stories to entertain you, I spread stories to keep you in the loop. I am not a grammar freak, but I do know how to spell it. I am exceedingly proud of my scrambled eggs and I really could eat an entire pan of cupcakes. If I met me, I would be my best friend. I tend to be irreverent.

If you would like to chat with me or see what else I'm up to you can follow me on Twitter (betterinrealife), on facebook, or email me at betterinrealife at gmail.
