Do you know the temperament of your parents, other aging family members or even your own? My new book on “The Hardest Conversation” reveals that is could be critical when having these difficult conversations. I wish I had taken that into consideration when my brother was making some of the decisions he made. If I had known how to address his personality and temperament, I might have been able to help him change his mind about some of them.
That’s not maligning any of the choices people make it simply pointing out that when we have certain information we may active differently. Along with the book, “The Hardest Conversation”, I am writing a short ebook that describes some of the different temperaments, how they change as we age and some of the conflict they can cause.
Just because we are aging doesn’t mean that we are incapable of learning or changing things to make our lives better.
You will find that theme throughout most of what I write, be it a tweet, a facebook, blog post or a book.
