How To Talk About Difficult Things 

Shabbat Shalom! I have not kept up with this blog as I should be! To be completely honest over the year that I have been writing I have recieved feedback thats not always so nice and I’m the kind of person that the when I read these messages it tears me down for awhile. 

I have spent the past couple of days writing a post about abortion but have decided not to post because I know for a fact that would have made some readers angry. So tonight I’m going to keep things short and sweet. 

At synagogue tonight I had to deal with an uncomfortable situation. I’m not going to go into detail but I sought out advice from a  few trusted friends. One of my friends had much advice for me — my Puerto Rican friend to be more specific. He is loud and fun. My advice from Mr. Guio about how to conquer my specific situation (and this may work for any hard situation): when you have to talk to someone about something that has the potential to be akward, keep the conversation light-hearted, and start doing the robot dance if you didn’t communicate properly – they will think you are weird and probably go away. 

So readers, here’s my Lama-Leah wisdom for you today. Love you all!

  1. Hey Leah!Here is a thought. If your readers don’t like your opinion then why are they reading you blog? Just a thought. We are having lots of fun up at my grandparent’s house in Massachusetts! Swimming in their pool, playing with our cousin Landon, who is 8, and going to the beach! My Mom just left this morning for Connecticut for some violin training. My Dad leaves Monday because he has to go back to work. My Mom will come back Saturday, but until then my grandparents will have their hands full(REALLY full). We will be back in KS by next Tuesday. I’ll send you a letter hopefully soon.Love you!-LydiaP.S. Please never stop writing your blog. Your a busy person, like we all are, so it’s nice to know what one of my good friends is thinking so I can pray for her or shoot her a freindly email. I might start a blog in a few years. Maybe…you have inspired me.
