Diary #203 Impartial Persuasion

"Look, this is honestly good for you. You should definitely go ahead."

"Why don’t you just listen to me and do it?!"


It's no surprise that you don’t though.

I know from experience that when someone is eagerly trying to persuade me it can backfire. A wift of neediness can be such a turn-off, even when I know they have my best interest at heart.


So what can I do?

I communicate my suggestion with an impartial attitude.


But how can I behave impartially when I care?

Being more intentionally-tuned-in or "mindful" can help. And, in my case, having a friend and colleague close enough to notice and tell me to chill out definitely does.
