Ah, the dreaded holiday interaction with a long-distance, sometimes well-meaning, relation who doesn’t understand boundaries. Which aunt or uncle or great-grand-something will comment on your holiday sweater being a little tighter this year? Or ask if you’ve finally started dating again? Or how that embarrassing surgery went? Who will ask the most awkward and inappropriate question?
Nice, Spice, and Ice could be your answer. You can’t control others asking odd questions or commenting on your food choices. But you can control your response. You can choose to be nice (We don’t use that word anymore, Aunt Sharon), be spice (Thanks for telling me my sweater’s too tight. Did you know that Frank isn’t your real father?), or be ice (Rude.)
Listen in as JoyGenea and Michelle talk about these options and a real sense of taking back the power at large social gatherings.
