So I've decided to take a "Dear Abby" style approach and provide responses to questions on my website & podcast.
*Please Note* Your Confidentiality is encouraged! However the responsibility is yours. Please change the names of yourself, other people and locations, or provide as few identifiable details as possible.
***Great**"I have been dealing with my sibling doing _______and when she says things like ______ I don't know what to say. I'd like her to stop but I also don't want to be mean."
***Good***"My friend, we'll call her "Cheryl", works a few offices down from me and feels the need to come by and say _______ every day on her way to the lunchroom. This leaves me feeling awful for hours, how do I cope?"
***Not Ideal***"Hi, my name is Abby and I'm from Denver, Co (near wash park!) So, my brother Brennan works at the tattered cover in town and whenever I go in him and his best friend Mark....."
I will do my best to remove or adjust the questions as best I can, however, I'd hate to change a name you made up to the person's real name on accident since I don't know any better!
Feel free to sign your questions with a cutesy name "Worried on the Westside" or something. Otherwise I'll see what I can come up with.
Not all questions will be a great fit and any that are may take a while to get produced into a blog/podcast/video so please be patient!
Thank you for taking the time to share your question, and for helping others in similar situations by sharing!
Thanks again, and I look forward to reading your question!
