Talk about it.

Those taboo topics? Talk about them.
Those uncomfortable moments? Talk about them.
The unfortunate event? Talk about it.
The elephant in the room? Talk about it.
That thing you don’t want to talk about? Talk about it.

I’m not talking about gossip and rumors. I’m talking about generous empathetic communication with those that are affected by the above.

Your friends.  Your colleagues.  Your family.  Especially your kids.  Those you care about. 

It’s not easy. Real generosity rarely is.
