There are people who you care about who voice their opinion of a habit they are dealing with. But the problem is, when they are thinking about breaking it, you want to help. You may not know how to voice your opinion correctly without any kind of problems you may face with your loved one, when it may come up.
The important thing to know is that we all love to receive compliments rather than a based opinion. Whether it’s on our skills, our appearance, or our likes, it obviously gives us a good feeling.
At times, we can be very critical of each other, and feel like your loved one is constantly nitpicking your ways of doing things, they might unintentionally feel like you’re not good enough for them. However, it they do the exact opposite, and compliment you daily, that just means you have a happy, successful relationship. The last thing you want to deal with, is a fight of opinion, when it occurs.
First, look for the right time to open the door when you feel it is good, especially when your loved one may make it easy if you pay attention to them. For example, when he or she begins to complain about his or her figure, while you may be out doing an errand, use it as an opportunity. You can cheerfully say, “You know, you are looking well, but if you want to lose weight, what can I do to help, without the risk of letting them feel worse?” Use your instinct to be positive towards them when they need it the most. Your conversation can remain simple to the point.
If you are a person that doesn’t get worked up so easily over a situation which can get worse, who isn’t self-aware enough to see a problem, you’ll need to create an opportunity to talk it out. When you talk, make sure they are not glued to their cell phone at the same time. Good eye-to-eye contact is important. Don’t take them by surprise. “Say you would like to talk about something important, and set a time to do it.” Timing is everything. Do not panic at the spur-of-the-moment. Keep trying! Today could be the day your voice can be heard.
