GIVE is an acronym and the second letter “I” means to act Interested.
A conversation with another person is going to be much more effective for you if you show that you are interested in what the other person feels and has to say.
Listen to what the other person has to say, even if it is difficult. Try not to interrupt. Be gentle with yourself and try to turn your mind away from slipping into full-on emotion mind.
If a person realizes that you are giving them time and space to speak and feel, they will be more receptive to what you have to say and what you are requesting.
If the person you need to have a conversation with needs to wait until another time to talk, then allow for that to happen. This is about keeping the relationship healthy if you can. Perhaps the other person really wants to wait until can devote their full attention to you.
